It's either a kernel line setting (quiet, rhgb) configurable from GRUB(2) or else from /etc/sysconfig/init.

Thanks unspawn. I just did a more on init, and below were the first four lines of it. Sounds like I need to change it to verbose, right?

# color => new RH6.0 bootup
# verbose => old-style bootup
# anything else => new style bootup without ANSI colors or positioning
BOOTUP=color

Actually, that doesn't appear to have helped. Maybe I need to do the grub thing you mentioned, can you point me in the right direction on how to do that?

Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and remove the "rhgb quiet" args.

OK, I removed the rhgb quiet and reset bootup back to color in the other file since that didn't appear to do anything from what i could tell, and I think that did it. Now i get text only when it boots up.

Will I have to do this every time the kernel updates too?
