Remove messages displayed by GRUB


Booting redhat Linux-2.4.20-8

root(hd0,0)
File System type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ console=null
[linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x11098a]
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img
[linux-initrd @0x7fcb000, 0x24906 bytes]

Uncompressing Linux...OK, Booting the Kernel.


I want these few messages not to be displayed at boot time, or atleast the screen is cleared after these messages appear....
How can I do this??

Can I write clear command in inittab before the sysinit line:
.
.
clear
si::sysinit:/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
.
.

does it allow to use such commands in inittab??
if not what can I do....

Edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and on the line which begins

Code:
kernel /vmlinuz-.........
Add the parameter 'quiet' (without the quotes) to the end of the line. This will suppress the boot messages.
