You can divert the output of dmesg (or any other command line program) using >
dmesg > /media/floppy/dmesg.log
You could do the same when you try to start up kde, in this case use &>, which will direct both the output and errors to a log:
kde &> /media/floppy/kde.log
As far as the logs, the best thing to do would be to simply cp them to the floppy, as long as they're not too big to fit.
