my machine just crashed again (big deal, it does that all the time)
but syslogd didn't log all the bootstrap messages.  here's all i

Apr 22 11:58:05 noc su: andrew to root on /dev/ttyp0 (s/key)
Apr 22 17:25:00 noc syslogd: restart
Apr 22 17:25:00 noc /netbsd: ction 0: DC21140 [10-100Mb/s] pass 1.1
Apr 22 17:25:00 noc /netbsd: de0: Ethernet address 00:00:c0:5d:0e:9f
Apr 22 17:25:01 noc /netbsd: de0: enabling 10baseT UTP port
Apr 22 17:25:01 noc /netbsd: de0: interrupting at irq 10
Apr 22 17:25:01 noc /netbsd: vendor 0x104b product 0x1040 (class mass storage, subclass SCSI, revision 0x04) at pci0 dev 12 function 0 not configured
Apr 22 17:25:01 noc /netbsd: biomask 840 netmask c40 ttymask c52
Apr 22 17:25:12 noc init: kernel security level changed from 0 to 1

which shows me su'ing and them six hours later syslogd restarts
and starts saving the kernel messages from about the end.

where'd the rest go?

then i looked at dmesg still seems to have a bunch of
stuff from the last time the machine was booted.  including the
panic message.

where does it save it?

the machine in question is running stock 1.2/i386 (old, yes, but i
haven't had a chance to go to the machine (physically) and upgrade
it for a long time) with 16m ram, etc.  what else is pertinent?
