To be or not to be, Nvidia Splash Screen?

I have made previous posts about this issue, beliving that my Nvidia drivers were installed improper. But I keep coming to the same conclusion that my Nvidia drivers are installed, and the Splash Screen for Nvidia just doesnt show up on some Computer setups.

a.) Is this true, sometimes nvidia drivers are installed correct but the splash screen doesnt display at boot

b.) If this isn't true, then what in the world is wrong, My xorg.conf shows driver "nvidia" glxgears runs at around 2700-3100 fps. lsmod shows

agpgart intel_agp,nvidia
i2c_core 17360 1 nvidia
lspci shows:
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)
So what is the deal with the Nvidia Drivers Splash Screen folks?

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "** NVIDIA (generic)                   [nv]"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    VideoRam    32768
    Option "IgnoreEDID"  "1"
    Option "NvAgp"  "1"
    Option "NoLogo"  "1"
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
you can choose to turn the splash on/off with the NoLogo option..........just edit the xorg.conf file......

yes, they can be installed correctly and not show the slash screen due to other factors. never seen it on my suse box,(the suse splash screen overrides things apparently)

I get an nvidia splash screen on suse 10 but the driver was updated from what came on the original cd which did not seem to have great 3d preformance but the new does preform well.

The NVIDIA splash screen only appeared one time on my SUSE 10.0 installation--the first boot after upgrading. I don't miss it, but the drivers are fine. By coincidence, I played a little Doom 3 today and everything worked fine--except my player skills, that is.
