# yum install rhgb

Make sure you have 'rhgb' as a kernel parameter for each kernel
in /boot/grub/menu.lst that you want to have a graphical boot

If you want graphical boot you probably qant to use the 'quiet'
kernel parameter too.

I've never seen much need for the kernel messages at boot
anyways, they scroll by so fast the only way your going to see
them is on a serial console with scroll back buffer. There is
always 'dmesg' to see these after start up.
