F14 boot screen - show progress

I just installed the latest updates for Fedora 14, and a restart was necessary so I did. Then, it didn't reboot! It hung when the cursive Fedora "f" was there for about 15 minutes. I had guessed that maybe it was doing an automatic fsck disk check, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, I couldn't change to tty2 etc while this was happening and for all I knew, the system was frozen. Is there a way to see the load progress (the text) while booting?

FYI, after 1 extremely slow but eventually successful boot, everything is back to normal with rapid boot times.

Press the Esc key during the Plymouth graphic to see the messages it is hiding. Press the Esc key again to hide them again.
