you can make it bigger, but both the old and new kernels must agree on
its size, so you'll need a new ncr kernel, and an new siop kernel.
you change the size with 'options MSGBUFSIZE="(32 * 1024)" or similar.
MSGBUFSIZE is the size in bytes you'd like the message buffer to be.
I tend to use 256k, myself, but that's often overkill. 8-)
