How do you apply this? I imagined all I did is place a splash.xpm.gz into /boot/grub but since there is no such file how do I install this?

hi,
go to the console and then

# su
[password]

# apt-get remove grub

#wget -c http://www.guiaubuntupt.org/files/gfxboot/grub-gfxboot_0.97-5_i386.deb

# dpkg -i grub-gfxboot_0.97-5_i386.deb

# apt-get -f install

then you should unpack the file you'd downloaded and copy the "message.ultimate" to /boot/grub/

after copy the 'message.ultimate' return to the console

# kedit /boot/grub/menu.lst (kedit, gedit, any editor)

and then you sud add the following sentende on the menu.lst

gfxmenu /boot/grub/message.ultimate

go back to the console again

# grub

appears a new kind of terminal, u sud type

grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
(hdx,y) <- the terminal will return this to u, x and y are values you need)

now in the same terminal you type

grub>root (hdx,y)
grub>setup (hdx)
grub>quit

now u are on your normal console again, just type

# grub-install /dev/hda

(presuming your HD is the hda it may be the sda or other.)

hope it can help you :)

I don't really like the artwork nor the colors, but it is an excellent job; I have to admit even when I don't like it is an outstanding job.
Keep up the good work
:)
