Sure you can - put a switch in the phone's advanced preferences!   :')

Anyway, I have always felt that with a little dress-up, the verbose  
startup could become reassuring rather than alarming.   The reason  
it's alarming is mostly that it just sits there saying nothing  
intelligible to the end-user.   If it said things like "probing for  
Atheros ethernet device...   found." or "configuring network..." then  
the end user might be less alarmed.   If you don't know any better  
though I think it looks too much like a Windows crash, to which old- 
timers are too painfully accustomed.
