The "cute graphical thingie" comes with frame buffer (text) boot. If you want
the full text telling you what goes on during boot do the following:
1. cd /boot/grub
Use your favourite editor to edit menu.lst, and find the line representing the
kernel you want to boot, e.g.:
2. sudo vi menu.lst
Find the kernel line:
root=UUID=b02e6475-695f-4529-bd93-ca36dbac752a ro quiet splash
and change it to:
root=UUID=b02e6475-695f-4529-bd93-ca36dbac752a ro vga=0x318
Note the above is on one line.
"vga=0x318" gives you text resolution 1024x768. Other resolutions:
0x31b = 1280x1024
0x315 = 800x600
0x312 = 640x480
3. Reboot. Select the above kernel. The "thingie" should be back and every
step in the boot process is documented.
Hope that helps.
