Need Help Suse 9 Graphical Boot

I am still pretty new but I had Suse 8.2 on my Laptop and when the computer would start it went to Grub and when I chose Suse it had a nice graphic with a progress bar. I installed Suse 9 Pro ( Clean new install ) and I don't get that anymore. I know it has it I just don't know how to get it working. I went into runlevel editor on expert mode and it said splash wasn't on so I tried to turn it on but it says ect/init.d/ splash start returned 5 ( Program is not installed ). Could someone help me with detailed instructions if possible because am still not real great on this machine. Thanks for any help you can give.

Talking Fixed

OK, my situation was very similar to yours, except for one thing.

I was using SuSE 8.2 First I suggest you search in YaST2 package installation for the words "splash", make sure the two splash screen related packages are installed properly. [bootsplash] and [bootsplash-theme-SuSE].

Next login in as root. If you don't know how to do this then press ALT+F2 and in the window that pops up type konsole. Shortly a console window should open up. At the prompt type su and following that you're root admin password.

After that is all done issue the command mkinitrd by typing it in at the prompt. You now should be looking for "- splash picture (1024x768)". If that is there, then reboot your system and it should appear next time the system boots up.
