No start up-boot messages

Hi, I don't get a start up log while debian is booting 
> and I don't understand that. Does someone know what, if any, line in
my menu ist (posted below) would cause the start up log to be blanked?
In  other words I don't see anything no boot messages.The first thing I
see after selecting debian in the grub menu is the login/select user box.


> title debian3.0  
>     root (hd1,4)  
>     kernel (hd1,4)/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-k7 root=/dev/hdb5 hdd=ide-scsi 
> vga=791  
>     initrd (hd1,4)/boot/initrd.img-2.4.18-k7  
  I read the SuSE Grub help and it said that some kernels don't need a 
initrd. So I just removed the initrd line from the slack entry and it 
booted!! Maybe that will help someone else. i am now booting 
floppy-less!  Alright! Thanks again & again!
