Try adding LOGLEVEL=4 to /etc/sysconfig/rc.site

that may or may not fix your issues, but it's really hard to capture all the 
messages from the programs being called in the boot scripts.

LOGLEVEL 4 writes warning conditions
LOGLEVEL 5 is the default and writes normal, but significant, messages

The idea behind the split log_info_msg and evaluate_retval is to give the user a 
message of some kind if the particular program hangs.  This is especially 
important if the system is doing an extended fsck.
