Question Boot Message Review

I would like to review the boot messages. I try to read them as they go by, but they are scrolling to fast to see what is happening and in what order. How can I do that access these messages after the boot? Are they logged somwhere? I am running Debian 3.0.

from a terminal issue

dmesg > boot.messages

this should send a text file to your home directory for review.
good luck.
