Removing "rhgb quiet" from the boot line is a very good idea.  It's a
lot more fun to watch the messages flash by under the 4 penguins than to
watch a more or less empty screen.  Unfortunately, the system puts the
monitor to sleep after system shutdown, and the screen goes blank.  I
*think* I see messages about unmounting file systems and that I don't
see a panic message, but I'm not sure.

I'll try to find a monitor setting to keep the screen from going blank
when it receives no signal.  Any advice would be welcome: the monitor is
an Acer P243W)

Thanks - jon
