I might be wrong, but I always thought that rc.local was loaded after runlevel 5. ( rc.d5 )

Well, how could you run the Linux logo before then, if you put it in rc.local ?
Try to make a script, and put a link in rc.d3 or 5 with the letter S ( from start ) and a number before the name of the link. ( just guessing ! )

PS sorry you made the scipt already
