Do you really want to see us lose to the likes of the Rams? Not like they will hear the boos before the game starts and say 'Oh no throw in Yates!' So the effect will only be negative at that point and nothing to gain from it. If we need to release frustration that badly then before the game take your wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, mistress or whatever and hit the bed. Best stress reliever in the world right there.
Now if he goes in there and continues to suck that's a different story. Boo birds errupt. But it shouldn't be a second before nor overboard like the childish name calling/threats some fans do (not saying you obviously). Give him support til he does something to lose it during the game otherwise we're hurting our team ourselves. That's not what a fanbase should do nor is it what homefield advantage is about. I'm pretty sure at this point he knows how everyone feels and that he is not playing up to par. He'd have to be Forrest Gump to not know at this point what is right in his face.
If booing hurts Schaub's confidence enough that it forces him off the field, it is DEFINITELY going to help the team. The sooner he stops playing for the Texans as our starting QB, the sooner we have a chance to get better. Consider it like picketing in front of the White House or a corporation. Booing Schaub is the same thing to me. As a fan, I am also a customer to the Texans and when the "product" being marched out there is defective (MS is definitely defective), we reserve the right to protest.
