Completely hide printk during load?

I've got debian 5.0 lenny, kernel version 2.6.36. My dpkg is outdated, I cannot update it because the distro and kernel options are beyond minimal(too many dependencies missing, and most of them also cannot be installed thorugh .deb or apt because my dpkg doesnt support newer archive types), because the hardware is not compatible with newer versions. splashy doesnt work as much as I would like it to and generally leaves me with alot of locale and alike bugs(done locale-gen/dpkg-reconfigure loc_LOC.UTF-8 for both locales I need, but didnt help much, only resolved some PERL stuff). I am unable to install plymouth aswell. I have done:

- uncommented kernel.printk = 4 4 1 7 in /etc/sysctl.conf
- VERBOSE=no in /etc/defaults/rcS
- update-rc.d -f remove
- update-rc.d -f console-setup remove
- update-rc.d defaults 99 1
- update-rc.d console-setup defaults 99 1

If someone could lead me to the complete installation of plymouth under debian 5.0 somehow including million of dependencies(dpkg -i --force-depends-version & apt-get -f install done only half work for me) - that would be awesome. Or some other way to completely hide the printk during boot time, including INIT, or even manually add a splashimage for the whole load duration.
