Just wanted to add that debian and ubuntu provide the update-grub script which will rewrite menu.lst for you to include all kernels it finds in /boot. It automatically makes a backup of the existing menu.lst also. Just type "sudo update-grub" and the changes that syg00 described will be made "automagically"
Did you update the menu.lst with those lines I added in (to show you where to add) or did you perhaps (wrongly) completely replace menu.lst with what I posted ???.
If you are seeing the boot messages, implies the bootsplash isn't working.
Might be best to restore your menu.lst - then re-do the edit if you're confident enough.
Syg00, you're right. I went back and pasted your info exactly where it should have gone. Everything works flawlessly now. Thanks a million, dude!
