There is a project called "bootsplash.org"
Their feature list:
* Nice graphics (JPEG)
* Antialiased text rendering (TrueType)
* Animations (MNG)
* Progress Bar
* Display of boot messages above or below a graphic.
("verbose" and "silent" modes)
* Fully themeable
Visit http://www.bootsplash.org if you have more interest
in that part of debian-installer then I have.
