OK, I figured out that xconsole will provide a console window, though I'm 
surprised that there isn't a default output for it.

So I turned on kernel message logging to the console via the rsyslog.conf file.
When I try to nfs mount to this machine, though, it times out unless I 
stop the iptables service.  When iptables is on I don't get any messages on the

console window, so I can't see the reason for the denial.  hmmph.
