Looking at the archives on fedora-test I found that the rhgb option

Kernel command line: auto BOOT_IMAGE=gboot ro root=30c
BOOT_FILE=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl rhgb

/etc/sysconfig/init has:

# Turn on graphical boot

This machine boots into runlevel 4 if that makes any difference.  I
assume that since this is passed via a kernel option this is of no
