Bootable Disc Messages

Hi Every one.
I have written a small application using gtk2.0. Also i have prepared a
bootable cd image so that when i boot from the cd my application runs.
For this purpose i have used kernel 2.6.14 statically compiled (without modules) and isolinux.bin as a bootloader while using the suse linux
Also i m using Xvesa server for X support with icewm window manager.

Now when i boot from cd the splash screen appears and by giving the proper boot option following messages appear

Loading linux...........
Loading root.img....................

After it the kernel messages appear.

I want that the booting messages before kernel messages (Looding linux and Loading root.img) donot appear and the splash screen remains untill the image is loaded. Is there any way to acheive it.

isolinux.bin is downloaded from their web site.
isolinux.cfg is as follows

DEFAULT myimage

timeout 900

display boot.msg

label myimage
kernel linux
append load_ramdisk=1 initrd=root.img root=/dev/ram0 rw


Also boot.msg is

Press enter to boot

Kindly help me in this matter.
