    Feb 19 03:44:21 excaliber kernel: hdc: ATAPI 48X DVD-ROM drive, 512kB Cache, UDMA(33)
    Feb 19 03:44:21 excaliber kernel: Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.12
    Feb 19 03:44:21 excaliber kernel: hdd: ATAPI 40X CD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)

    the log will contain all the messages and checks made at boot
