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"

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!

Don't forget, once you have manually amended 'menu.lst', you need to run:
Code:
sudo update-grub
at a terminal. This will update your bootloader from 'menu.lst'.

Hi, irishbitte. Yeah, I forgot that. I had edited the menu.lst yesterday. But, I updated grub in terminal today as per your instructions. Thanks dude!
