Ok got here at last....

For grub4dos users the main point is to use version 4.4 which includes gfxmenu support. (and 256 inode and ext4 but not for the partition grldr is on).
The actual splash file is built in exactly the same way as normal grub.
Simply add
gfxmenu /path/to/splashfile
to your menu.lst

and enjoy....now to try and be artistic and get some graphics posted

Hi mikeb. Would you be so kind to explain this to dumb a$$ noob like me? It seems like that this utility by smokey01 & CatDude (hi there dude!) doesn't work with grub4dos. Question

All of the above relates to Legacy GRUB. Grub4Dos can also use these gfxmenu files, so it may be easier to edit whatever script it (Grub4Dos) uses to create the menu.lst and add a similar line to it.
Thank you.

P.S. Blame CatDude, he's the one who said:

So if anybody has any questions concerning it, please direct them to the grub4dos expert Mr mikeb Wink Wink
Cool

EDIT: Due to a forum quirkiness these days, all the correspondence between mr. mikeb and yours truly, was carried out via PM. Case closed!

Thank you very much, sire. Wink

Ok forum quirks indeed.

Here is a screenshot I made which might make it easier to see what needs to be done than a pile of words.
