Bootsplash - status bar not moving


I have 2.6.22.1 kernel patched with bootsplash and I've downloaded a bootsplash from kde-look.org, configured my lilo.conf:
Code:
image="/boot/vmlinuz"
        vga=791
        root="/dev/hda2"
        label="Linux"
        initrd=/boot/initrd.splash
        read-only
        append="resume=swap:/dev/hda4 splash=silent"
But when I bootup the splash screen appears ok, black backgroung with a slack logo but the status bar doesn't move anywhere. The computer boots though.
First I thought it was a bad bootsplash so I tried another one but the effect was the same, picture appears, status bar doesn't move.
What should I do?

You need to change the rc-scripts to have them contain percent marks for the progress bar to work. I did that some time ago but don't remember more exactly. Check the readme.
