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.

have a look at the GNU GRUB splashimage howto.
Very good instructions on how to patch your GRUB sources (the author is a debian user, you may need to be a little careful).
Also, the page has a script to detect if your GRUB is already capable of displaying splash images.
"DJ Lucas" suggested that these (debian) sources were already patched and that they built cleanly on LFS.
Also, version .92 is supposed to build cleanly and work with the provided patch.
There is another thread on the lfs mailing list discussing this in great detail. They got it to work also, but again it boils down to using the debian sources (or working with them at least).
