grub 0.95 splash image


This may have been answered alread, i have searched around and didnt really find anything that would work so please dont yell at me if it has been answerd. i just installed slackware 10 and i wanted to use grub so downloaded and installed it. it didnt come with a splash image so i made one. whenever grub comes up its just black with the menu on it theres no splash screen. is there a different way to set up the splash screen in the newer versions of grub because i did what i have done before in older versions. here is my menu.lst

#Timeout
timeout = 5

#Splash screen
splashimage=(hd0,5)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

#Default Selection
default=0

#Linux config
title=Linux
root=(hd0,5)
kernel=(hd0,5)/bzImage root=/dev/hda8

#Windows Config
title=Winblows
root=(hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

firstly you can grab my stage2 file from this post with its link
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ht=splashimage

but you have bzImage in your kernel line. Did you compile your own? slackware tends to use vmlinuz
