boot screen messages

Why doesn't dmesg list all the stuff that flashes past and has [OK] after it on boot up?

Is there a way to get all this stuff listed in a file?

Well dunno about Sys v based distros since i never used one (except SuSE two years ago) but with slack you can find all the messages that dmesg doesn't list by looking through your logs
look at debug, messages, syslog found in /var/log
