Thanks for you responses, but I have been misunderstood.  Maybe I wasn't
clear in my original post.  I know how to direct the messages, but I don't
manually startx... I boot up in runlevel 5, so I use xdm.  I know how to
get an aterm up on startup, and I know how to make the aterm catch console
messages.  The problem is that if I try firing up an aterm that catches
console messages on startup, it doesn't work and the regular xconsole is
used instead.
