redirecting kernel boot bios messages



hello,

is there an effective way to redirect the kernel bios boot messages 
to /dev/null directly after POST?  Would it then be possible to throw up some 
ascii art like:

<snip>
        _____                 ____   _____ _____
       / ___ \               |  _ \ / ____|  __ \
      / /  / /___  ___  ____ | |_) | (___ | |  | |
     / /  / / __ \/ _ \/ __ \|  _ < \___ \| |  | |
    / /__/ / /_/ /  __/ / / /| |_) |____) | |__| |
    \_____/ .___/\___/_/ /_/ |____/|_____/|_____/
         /_/

Please standby during system initialization...

</snip>

on the console?

After the kernel finish's boot, init -> login would take back control of the 
the ascii screen.

thx for cpu time,
