 [ deleted the 'more information' provided by Martin Michlmayr ]

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.
