How can I prevent terminal boot messages from being cleared

When booting gets to the end, just before issuing "login",
the screen is cleared. I'd like to prevent this so I can read
the boot messages.
I'm running a stock F7 system w/ updates. My GRUB boot
stanza is adjusted to show boot messages directly on the VT
(no spash screen).
In the past I've added "-- noclear" to the tty lines in
/etc/inittab like this:
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1 -- noclear tty1
This doesn't seem to work anymore. How is this done in F7?
