I've tried looking around, but all I'm getting is how to configure GRUB, or using usplash/plymouth but I cant really find where I would get a colourful text based boot similar to the knoppix one I just linked.
Does anybody have any any idea of how to achieve this? Ubuntu and Knoppix are both debian based, so I don't think it should be TOOO difficult.

I should have elaborated, that updating grub does show text, but its all white on a black background.
Im curious about how to make the text colourful and show importance/success and failures through the text colours (green is success, red is failure), similar to the way its displayed on a distro like knoppix.
