Well if you entered it as written there's no wonder. You have to put the full path to the image or it'll never find it.
Example:
Code:
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/images/xxx.xpm.tar.gz

Ah I missed this the first time through, is the file extension really xpm.tar.gz?

It should be in the format of xmp.gz

Oh, and please type full, real words. Things like "tat" instead of "that" "ur" instead "your" are quite annoying and make a lot of people less inclinded to actually try to read your posts. You're not IMing, so you can type real words.
