    1.22-Being able to set the console device to other than a
    1.23-display is marginally useful on file servers; MS-DOS
    1.24-and the programs which run under it are so tightly bound
    1.25-to the display that it is necessary to have a display if any
    1.26-setup or reconfiguration programs need to be run.
    1.27-Also, the delay before any messages appear at boot time
    1.28-is disconcerting, as any error messages from the BIOS
    1.29-are lost.
    1.31-The declaration of a kernel parameter which is a prefix of
    1.32-previously declared parameters will delete the previous
    1.33-ones. If this is not desired, parameters should be given
    1.34-in shortest to longest order.
