[CentOS] kernel panics on bootup

Is there a way to disable the auto reboot when the kernel panics
during bootup?  I tried passing "panic=0" using grub but it still
reboots automatically.

I need to at least pause it long enough to read the screen to
determine the cause of the panic.

Thanks for any help.
