You can't turn it off. However you can change things so that you see
console output during the boot. Remove 'quiet' and 'rhgb' from the kernel
entries in /boot/grub/grub.conf .

Are you sure? Did you try other consoles besides vt1? Between F9 and F10
the X console moved to vt1 from vt7. If X isn't running but you are in run
level 5, I don't think vt1 will be usable.

Maybe you want to boot in run level 3? If so you can add '3' to the kernel
paramters while you are editing grub.conf. It isn't clear what you are
really trying to do though, so it may be that switching to run level 3
is not the correct answer.
