I keep a ffs formatted floppy handy and then:

# cat /kern/msgbuf > /tmp/mydmesg

...and then mount the floppy and:

# cp /tmp/mydmesg /mnt

I suppose these could be collapsed into one step but I need to keep
things real simple. ;-) 

(I found this trick in the OpenBSD faq; give credit where credit is
due, etc, etc.)
