The version of splasy I tested worked alright with any kernel >2.6.
The splashy screen just displays an image and a growing progress bar. If 
you hit ESC, you will get a text only console, so there was no need for 
a text frame.

With LiveBackup we had some bootsplash/usplash which provides a special 
kernel. For testing reasons we had produced screens which are not yet 
mature enough for official releases:

luisa1-silent works alright, the frame was placed by bootsplash in a way 
that tux lured over the corner.

http://wiki.skolelinux.de/Splashy has got further readings. When I have 
more time, I will look for another Skolelinux screen for splashy I made 
some months ago.
