I think he means before w2k takes over.  

Bochs has serial output but you have to make sure its enabled.  I'm
not at work right now or I would tell you the exact #defines in BOCHS
to make sure are enabled.
Search the linuxbios archives for "bochs" and "serial debug".  Or you
can just look at the bochs code and search for "debug". One of those
#defines enables serial ouput.

When serial output is enabled you will be able to see all the stuff
that would normally have been sent to the vga screen.

You are using LinuxBIOS V1 I assume?
