Thanks for the help.
It still shows some hardware info, OpenBSD/i386 boot 1.26, and switching
console to com0 but no login. I am only trying to have a normal boot
screen without any information whatsoever except login:_ 'cause I still
need to boot the box on and off and login to do stuff. Also, the box is
hosed if no com0 monitor is available.
By the way, is it also possible to supress root/su access alert on
screen? I tried to locate the code but have yet gotten even close. :)
