Looking for info on gas fired boiler

Just moved in. House has Burnham gas boiler/ steam radiators all on one thermostat. Annual maintanence was done 4 months prior to our home purchase and system was checked during home inspection. Turned heat on for the first time, everything works, but there's a lot of flame visible below boiler unit. Is this normal? What other essential info do we need for safe operation?

I'm personally not familiar with the symptom you describe.

If no one else responds on this forum, why not call a local service person to have the problem checked out???

There are more dedicated forums that deal with gas-fired boilers at doityourself.com (Plumbing,Heating, AC --->Heating---->Boilers); and heatinghelp.com ("the wall").
