I don't pass too much time on lilo. However it is the first contact that
you have with debian after the installation. To my mind, it is important
to have something which looks good. It is not hard to do it, and will
immediately give a good impression to new users.

That a good idea. If you have links with debian wallpapers could send
them to me ? After my holidays I will get in touch with the persons who
realises each of them in order to know the license of these wallpapers.
So that I could realize a debianwallpapers package. What do you think
about it ?

Look at kernel-patch-debianlogo - Display a Debian logo on a framebuffer
device at boottime
