GRUB Splash

Hi there,
I'm trying to install a GRUB bootsplash, but it doesn't work, it gets me normal GRUB, black and white. Here my /boot/grub/menu.lst

default 0
timeout 30
splashimage (hd0,7)/boot/grub/slack_nalug.xpm.gz
foreground = FFFFFF
background = AAAAAA
title Slackware GNU/Linux
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz vga=791 root=/dev/hda8 ro
I have Slackware completely installed on /dev/hda8 , and slack_nalug.xpm.gz it's on /boot/grub/.
Why it doesn't work Is there something wrong with my menu.lst

The splashimage command is a hack and it's not supported in grub shiped with slackware.
The best think to do is download and install the one from that supports splashimage:

(I suppose you have slackware 10.1 installed)
