I have a sneaky feeling this is a dumb question - but I will ask it anyway.

When I boot my computer I get an initial message that says "Press Tab to see Post messages" or something similar.

If I press Tab the post messages become visible - but race down the screen too fast for me to read them.

Is there a way to either slow it down - or even better - be able to see them one page after another?

In the BIOS will be an option, "Show Full Screen Logo" or "show Boot Logo" or similiar.
Turn this option off.
By the way, the messages will still fly past regardless of the choice of this option.

Don't know if it'll work or not but, you might try [Ctrl-S] to stop the scrolling, and then [Ctrl-Q] to continue.

I have found a solution - hit he Pause Break key which stops the post message and then hit enter to start it again.

You need lightning reflexes though to stop it at the right place. I cannot find a way of scrolling slowly or showing the message in a series of pages.

Excellent. :)

Tried both [Pause/Break] and [Ctrl-S] here on a laptop and neither one worked. :) <-shrug->

Try this: Boot into the bios. Go to the boot menu. In there look for a setting that indicates rapid boot or some such language. Disable that. What will happen is the bios will count all the memory on bootup and slow the screen so you can see the bios version.
