I just can tell you i tried many times with bootsplash, but then i switched to splashutils because (if i'm right) it's newer and, on my machine, it works very good (and maybe it's a little easier to use )

Yes. There's a utility, bootsplash2fbsplash (if i'm not wrong -- but splashutils will tell you how it's called), wich let you converse bootsplash themes to splashutils themes. Actually it's what i did....

Good Luck
