Re: Lost: pretty graphic boot-up

I installed FC2 on a spare partition to start playing with it, and when it boots up, it goes into a pretty screen with a workstation icon and circling arrows with an option to show more details. I swear I remember seeing this with FC1, but I haven't for a long time. With FC1, at the time when the pretty screen would come up, the screen goes blank for a few moments, then blank with the X-Windows X cursor, then briefly blank again before finally getting to the login screen. I figure I must have lost this feature with a kernel upgrade, and upgrade of gdm or some other software. Is there a way I get the pretty screen back in FC1?

Forgive the bad form for replying to my own post. The pertinent lines in my grub.conf are


title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2174.nptl-awr1)
root (hd0,9)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2174.nptl-awr1 ro root=LABEL=/12 hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2174.nptl-awr1.img
title Fedora Core 2 (2.6.5-1.358)
root (hd0,11)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img


Thanks!
