Hi, I never did it, just use text mode, but I know some nerds who do it - so:
1. Make sure u have a Boot-Disk (just in case ;)
2. Edit "message=..." in "/etc/lilo.conf" -- instead of /boot/message you'd need to insert the location/image
3. run lilo after modifying her.
4. Good luck :))
Take care, x86h.
