If you add
Code:
quiet
to your kernel parameters in grub or lilo then it will supress the output while the kernel boots. This means that nothing will be displayed before vesafb-tng kicks in. A slight problem with this is that if you use grub (i don't know about lilo) you get a few lines from grub about the kernel being loaded. This is however still an improvement. It seems like vesafb-tng kicks in a bit quicker as well.

Hope this helped someone, i'm off to see if i can quiet grub as well.

Thanks for the tip, editing my grub.conf as I type this.
