What exactly are you missing? Or better: what do you want to do? :-)

So what you want to get is a splash while booting the grml live-cd?

I wrote the splash-stuff basically just-for-fun a while ago and
never announced it officially because grml boots faster than loading
the framebuffer-powered splash. 8-)

You don't have to do anything on your own to use the splash feature,
just boot using 'grml splash'. But you will notice that loading the
splash stuff takes a while. The reason is that grml is running stuff in
background and parallel as far as possible to minimize bootup time.
Loading an image on plain console/framebuffer takes a while in
userspace. :-/

Evaluating fbsplash (see
http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/gensplash/) is on my todo
list. If you have any ideas how to improve the splash feature please
let me know.
