I'll try that shortly, but I have a few questions.

1) What makes this different than the existing section in my grub.conf for
the previous kernel version?
2) I assume you intend for me to override the default boot in the grub boot
dialog to use this added entry?
3) Removing rhgb and quiet from the kernel line only turns X off during the
boot, not after boot is complete, right?
