Please see the cheat codes for turning off sound and graphical boot:
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Cheat_codes

Hold down the 'rotate' screen button while you power up. We may also want a
command line to turn this off indefinately (for every boot), but I think
that has to come with the Control Panel.  Requirements for this can be found
in the Requirements page of the wiki. I just added this request, 4.10:
