Thanks for everyone who chimed in with their .02. I did:
yum list *logos*
yum install *logos* <-- which also uninstalled the wbel logos upon
install, quite nice.
So I got that in there works/looks great. Thanks again. So after that
I figured well why dont I edit this logo and jazz it up for the company
and make a custom one. Open up the GIMP, open the stock image (after:
gzip -d splash.xpm.gz) add company logo, the gzip'd it back with the -S
.gz keeping the same extension. load it in place at /boot/grub/ make
sure its referenced in grub.conf, check. Boot up and the image is all
distored and discolored.
Ill be scouring around the net when I get some free time for a good how
to on making your own with out all the display problems.
Thanks again !
