if your splash image isn't 16 colors or less, it won't display. I ran in to that same problem. ONce I changed it to 16 colors, it worked like a charm.

busbarn, you're a god! I've been playing with that image for days trying to work out what was going on in my head and never once thought to change the color depth. I was going to post a question about it on here if I could not find anything about it by searching. Now I don't even have to ask.

/me buys you a beer or ten. You rock.

kvikki I've finally had some luck getting my boot splash to work. Try visiting the site: http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/~mcgrof/grub-images/

Here's the direct links to the latest sources and boot splash patch:
