Can I pause the boot up msgs?

I recently installed MDK 9.2 and on bootup after it connects eth0 which works fine and it
says "Searching for internet connections to start at boot" it hangs for a minute says FAILED with a couple lines of msg. can I pause that screen to read the msg? I only have 1 eth/dsl connection config'd. or what file can I edit manually get rid of this the msg drives me nuts... Thanks

perhaps dmesg |less would do the task.
