Splashscreen on Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex
I have just installed Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex on my computer which dual boots with Windows. The DVD installer was supplied with Linux magazine. During the installation process I was given no option to set up and configure Grub like I have been with other distros. When the installation was complete, I was left with a very unattractive black and white bootloader with no splash screen. BY default, does Ubuntu install Grub, or do they use some kind of custom Ubuntu Bootloader?
How can I fix this? I have always used Suse in the past, which has an attractive boot screen and I'm not keen on what I have at the moment. Can anyone give any suggestions about what has happened here?
