change your grub boot menu picture

Came across this url earlier and thought it was worth mentioning --

I'm using Mepis and booting with grub so my 'message' file was under /boot/grub/message instead of /boot/message (per the instructions), but other than that it went pretty smoothely. (used a Deus Ex .jpg for my boot image )

It is quite good, but making truly custom (not swapping images) theme is a nightmare...
