Like I said, I'm missing info. Like adding video= or vga= to the
menu.lst to tell grub I want to use framebuffer mode at boot. Google is
my friend. :)

I'm making progress. By adding video=vesa vga=0x317 I get a blank screen
up to the point that X starts. That's not a problem for now, because I
know I'm on the right track. I'm recompiling a kernel right now that has
vesa included, and not a module, as well as console framebuffer support.

Once I get that, *then* I can start playing with the bootsplash patch.
