Yes:

1. never reboot
2. no, unless you hack out your textconsoles out of /etc/inittab maybe,
  -- a very unwise thing to do
2.5 you might display them black on black
3. there may be a kernel patch to display a splashscreen a la windows 9x
4. the caldera bootup screen is very nice, you get your messages in a
window,
    with nice graphics and all, it's much clear what it is actually doing.

5. this is a non-issue really, if you are looking for user friendliness in
Linux,
    there are things with higher priority than the way it boots up.
    Like the lack of anti-aliased fonts in X for instance. Ten points if
you
    can solve that one (it can) and your users will love you more.
