Thumbs up

Ok, i figured this thing up: In Mandrake, first edit the image in The GIMP:
click right button of the mouse on the image, --> Image --> Mode --> Indexed, change the # of colors to 16, and finally save it with RLE encoded,
Then edit lilo.conf:
place a "#" symbol before the message=/boot/message
and change the bmp-colors and bmp-timer, to this: bmp-colors=6,9,0,15,9,0 and
and thatīs it, this help was in the page i wrote search in changing the date of the postings
Any way,
Hope it will work for you too,
