i am trying to replace bootsplash with splashy
i have uninstalled bootsplash, and i have splashy installed
when i type /usr/sbin/splashy boot into a terminal window i get the splashy boot screen, so i know it is installed ok, but when i boot i get only text
i have tried adding /usr/sbin/splashy boot to /etc/init.d using boot boot.local and as a rc3.d script.
these all show the screen, but there is lots of boot messages before it runs, meaning that i get loads of tet followed by a few seconds of splashy
i assume the change needs to be in the grub settings file /boot/grub/menu.lst
the entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst for the option i use is
###Don’t change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###

what do i need to add/delete/change for grub to loads splashy before any boot messages or text is displayed?
any help would be greatly appreciated
