Is it possible to set a boot-logo that's being displayed instead of any boot-messages, irrespective of the linux distribution ?

Mandrake does it, don't know how or why :)

Personally I find that annoying 'cause you
never know why exactly it's taking so damn long
to boot ;)

In my good lean Slack everything rushes past in a
third of the time, and I'm happy with that ... :}

Mandrake 9 has something like that..but it still shows what services are starting up...something that wasnt there in 8.2
8.1 didnt had any gui @ bootup @ all.. just quick bootsplash thingy saying welcome.

I'm thinkin about enhancing it though
