The stuff displayed during bootup is governed by the boot loader (lilo) up to the point that the kernel is selected, and then by distribution-specific scripts. If you are using a manually compiled kernel then it's possible you may have broken something.

The first thing to do is to check the logs for error messages generated during startup.
