The `quiet' Argument

This is pretty much the opposite of the `debug' argument. When this is given, only important and system critical kernel messages are printed to the console. Normal messages about hardware detection at boot are suppressed.

Zigi explicitly stated NOT the kernel argument, but the additional line that contains only "quiet". I imagine that it is an ubuntu modified grub that accepts this command to hide all output that normally is posted before the kernel loads.
