the blank screen means you dont have the proper frame buffer defined
( same probelm as my stuff ... just need to tweek the various fb options )

i'd do the same tests ( same kernel ) on machines that you know worked
on other distro ( like suse-9.1 has splash by default ) so it should
work for deb's splash too
- not all mb and not all chipsets are "the same" :-)
yup... and when you're done .. you can come play on my brain-dead mb too
with gazillion different chipset to see which works and which does not
support tux on boot or splash
