Where can I find some initrd images?

Ahhh... the contented glory that is a stable gentoo-amd64 installation, whats next I ask? How to beautify my system that all the windoze lusers will be envious of my glory.

The boot up of the system is ugly, verbose mode, it only serves to confuse the windoze lusers, lets hide it with boot-splash, there we go.

Yes, it works, but I want something a little bit less factory stamped than the Gentoo Livecd bootsplash, now I get to my question.

Does anyone know of an archive of initrd images, including verbose and silent modes?

emerge bootsplash-themes gives a good array of them to work with, but you have to compile them all your self.

Another thing to try is to search for bootsplash, rather than initrd images.
