Hi Shaakunthala!

Ok, my guess is that the "colors" option only affects the boot menu.
What we see is probably refered to by the end of the kernel line (hit
escape during the countdown to see the menu):
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-26-386 root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet splash
For which I can find no reference in the GRUB Manual:
# I used the PDF in Adobe and searched for "splash" - 0 results!
# But I did find this which may well interest you!
# And it's apparent source

Have a lot of fun!
