Can someone tell me exactly what I need to do? I've never really written scripts before, but the page is written for someone who has (I'm assuming). HELP!

I did apt-get it, I've got a picture showing up, I just don't understand how to get the progress bar moving instead of just sitting there

what about kernel-patch-lpp? is there a version of it for the 2.6.8-10 kernel? I would really like to not have to deal with scripting, seeing as how I know nothing about it. That link you gave me doesn't tell where to put those scripts. Other ideas?

OMG

Add the line listed from the earlier post to your /etc/apt/sources.list.

Than apt-get install sysv-rc-bootsplash bootsplash

and any themes u might like. A good thing to do is go to that repository and take a look at all those themes.

That will keep u from coding anything. Pay special attention to the package warnings about removal of bootsplash later.

K take it easy.

ok, I tried that and it's version 1.0.4 or something like that, and it's broken. I can't uninstall it completely or something like that, so I can't go back a version, should I just wait to see if it fixes itself?
