grub 0.95 splash image

This may have been answered alread, i have searched around and didnt really find anything that would work so please dont yell at me if it has been answerd. i just installed slackware 10 and i wanted to use grub so downloaded and installed it. it didnt come with a splash image so i made one. whenever grub comes up its just black with the menu on it theres no splash screen. is there a different way to set up the splash screen in the newer versions of grub because i did what i have done before in older versions. here is my menu.lst

timeout = 5

#Splash screen

#Default Selection

#Linux config
kernel=(hd0,5)/bzImage root=/dev/hda8

#Windows Config
chainloader +1

firstly you can grab my stage2 file from this post with its link

but you have bzImage in your kernel line. Did you compile your own? slackware tends to use vmlinuz
