Streamlined Boot Sequence

Registered by Scott James Remnant (Canonical) on 2005-10-19

Identify what we're actually doing during boot up, and decide what we actually need to be doing and drop (or move) anything we don't; regroup the boot sequence into clear targets ("hardware detection", "console setup", "filesystem checking and mounting", etc.).

All of the messages printed by the boot process should be clear, consistent and meaningful.
