Hide boot messages (not using frame/boot/gensplash)


I've a Gentoo system running on a machine without X to be used as an headless system (router).

Nevertheless I need to hide any info from the system as shown on each reboot.

So I need one "simple" thing: stop any messages till the login appears from being shown without using splash screens. Just a blank/silent boot without (possibly) any framebuffer tricks.

Can this be done?
