yep yep- check out the grub manual: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html
at risk of sounding un helpful, specific link is here:
http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#color

- you need to edit menu.lst with this stuff.

You don't have the GIMP? What distribution are you using?

I ran through the instructions... the only problem is that I couldn't copy to the boot/grub directory - access is denied. what gives?

are you running as root? (the best way is to use su)

su is like this:
$ su
Password: *type root password*
#now try
