Verbose boot

Last week, I was trying to track down why my computer was so slow to boot (It turned out to be a failing hard drive).  Normally Mac OS X doesn't show you any feedback about what is going on during boot.  You can put Mac OS X into verbose boot mode by holding down the command and 'v' keys.  After doing this you will see all of the output that you should ever need.
