I know it's just a matter of personal taste, but I personally like the little
"xconsole" program...just have it there around in a corner of your screen...
Another trick can be to use a totally transparent ETerm that does a tail -f
/var/log/messages , so you'll have the messages appearing right in your root
Of course, that means you want to look at all the messages your system sends
to "you" ; which is in my sense not a bad habit...
