    Indeed, but I'd wonder why someone whould start syslogd on a r/o
    filesystem, so probably /var/log/messages is not used at this time
    anyway. You could set up syslogd to do remote logging to another machine
    and fire it up before the troubles to capture anything. But of course
    this requires
    a) another machine
    b) syslog set up on both sides for remote logging
    c) a working network

    An alternative would be to mount another disk with a different
    filesystem (reiserfs/FAT) and log to there.
