User-agent: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.7 (Windows/20050923)

loaded kernel and initrd to disappear.

I need that for hundreds of distributed systems where users
shouldn't be able to gather information about running services
(including kernel version and bootloader) for security reasons.
However, showing a boot-splash without any text would be fine.

Check stage2/char_io.c on source code replace any reference to printf or sprintf with a function of your own placed on the same file that accept a variable number of arguments and does nothing but return 0 and I think you're done. ./configure, make, make install from sources and a non-printing grub for you.

Anyone has more ideas?
