No Boot Screen - Ever!

Hi all.

I found etc/usplach.conf, and it said:

"# Usplash configuration file
# These parameters will only apply after running update-initramfs.


(without the quotes).

The screen resolution is normally 1152x864, which is what it says in
the usplash.conf file. It looks like my screen supports that
