GFXboot in Mandrake 10 (Official)

I got most of the boot theme replaced with my own graphics except for the lilo boot menu. I googled around a bit and found out that SuSE has a package called GFXboot that supposedly allows you to compile your own boot menu from an 8bit PCX file. I found the source RPM for it on one of the SuSE sites and compiled it myself without errors, then tried creating a menu using a config file I had created. It gave me this warning but it seems to have compiled the menu:

Line 1: Warning: color 0 is not black!

I copied the file to /boot/mymenu and updated /etc/lilo.conf (message=/boot/mymenu), then ran "lilo -v" but when it boots it comes up in the non-graphical mode. If I switch back to /boot/message it boots fine with the original ugly, graphical menu. It's as if lilo couldn't read the menu I had created. Any ideas?
