Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've tried looking around, but all I'm getting is how to configure GRUB, or using usplash/plymouth but I cant really find where I would get a colourful text based boot similar to the knoppix one I just linked.
Does anybody have any any idea of how to achieve this? Ubuntu and Knoppix are both debian based, so I don't think it should be TOOO difficult.

I should have elaborated, that updating grub does show text, but its all white on a black background.
Im curious about how to make the text colourful and show importance/success and failures through the text colours (green is success, red is failure), similar to the way its displayed on a distro like knoppix.
