Lilo boot screen with a custom imageI've managed to set up a nice splash screen at boot with Lilo, so I'm posting here my /etc/lilo.conf for future reference. This one adds a picture in background (click image), the list of available kernels in top left corner, and the timer countdown in the lower right corner. The rest of the .conf file is mostly unchanged.

When I have a few spare hours I shall give a deeper look at two interesting projects. Lilo Splash for the Gimp is a Gimp plugin to create splash screens. And even cooler, animated splash screens, including a fully functionnal breakout game 8-)
