Question Boot Sequence changed After Image Restore

Hello All,

I backed up my RHEL 4 as an image.
Then I restored the image on my machine. Everything went fine but I dont get the normal boot sequence as it used to come when I freshly installed RHEL4.

The messages that are shown when the system boots are something like-
" .....
EXT3-fs: INFO: recovery required on readonly filesystem.
EXT3-fs: write access will be enabled during recovery.
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5
EXT3-fs: recovery complete.
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.

At this point, system waits for a while and then login prompt comes up normally. Everything in the system is working fine.

I just need to understand how this boot sequence got changed.
Is there anyway by which I can restore the normal boot sequence which used to get previously...
something like (may not be exactly similar)-

*** Welcome to Red Hat Linux Enterprise ***

Starting cups ..... [OK]
Starting NFS ...... [OK]
Starting *** ..... [OK]
Starting eth0 [OK]

Can anybody please tell me how do I get this kind of boot sequence again ??

# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
/dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults 0 0
/dev/sda6 /root2 ext3 rw,nosuid,noexec,auto,nouser,async,noatime,nodev 00
/dev/sda5 /var ext3 rw,nosuid,noexec,auto,nouser,async,noatime,nodev 00
/dev/sda7 swap swap defaults 1 2

Here's some updates-

The message that does not get displayed are the init messages. Those that are getting displayed are the kernel messages.

I checked the following files-
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit-- in which all the messages are stored
/etc/rc3.d/* -- for default run-level

all are same as those on the machine where the init messages appear on the console.

So now the problem is - why are init messages not shown on the console during the system start-up/reboot
