I suppose the boot manager for linux is called grub, how do I change the splash image for it?
the methods mentioned don't quite do what I want. This grub is customized for linux mint it seems, (or something like that). It uses a graphical menu, this line in
/boot/grub/menu.lst is responsible for that.
## Graphical boot menu location gfxmenu=/boot/gfxmenu/linuxmint.message
