G'day there Gabor,

>Thank you. So it's not a bug it's a feature :)))
    I've currently got Hoary installed in a dual boot selection 
alongside of Win XP (the OS I use at work, so I can bring stuff home & 
work on it in my own time - sigh...).   I have a Grub bootsplash working 
fine, although I had to install it by hand. Just a nice simple graphic 
that someone else made - I have the artistic skills of a bowling ball -  
and that I converted to 15 colours (although I just checked the file & 
it says 16 colours) in 640 x 480 then saved as a gzipped xpm file. It 
needs to have .xpm.gz  for an extension.

    You may already be familiar with all of that. I don't know how 
familiar you are with Grub. I'm not an expert by any means, but I did 
manage to get a splashimage working and it wasn't hard to do. If you're 
not aware of how to set it up, just check 'info grub'. Although you 
could easily know far more than me about it and this extra information 
isn't necessary. In that case, t may be of use to someone else =) .

See ya
