how does one do this?- do I need to be running GRUB?

You can add it to grub before the OS boots, or if you have booted to the OS you can edit the config of Grub so that the option applies.

If you hold SHIFT at boot, you can press E to (e)dit the boot and add it on the line with 'quiet splash' which arethe default boot options.

Can you help with this problem?
