Description:

This is my first attempt at a lilo bootsplash for Slackware 12.
(I couldn't take that red box for another minute)
Download the file, which will be a 256 color bitmap.
in the terminal descend into the directory where you saved it
rename the file lilo.bmp

then as root do the following:
# ls /boot
(if there is already a lilo.bmp file there then make a backup of it i.e., # mv /boot/lilo.bmp /boot/lilo.bmp.bak )
copy the new lilo.bmp with:
# cp lilo.bmp /boot
backup your existing lilo.conf file with:
# cp /etc/lilo.conf /etc/lilo.conf.bak
then with your favorite editor add the following to /etc/lilo.conf (add it right after the line that says "boot=/dev/whatever...")

bitmap = /boot/lilo.bmp
bmp-colors = 239,220,0,220,239,255
bmp-table = 400p,250p,1,15,17
bmp-timer = 255p,431p,255,0,0

then run lilo
# lilo
(it may warn you that the bmp-table might spill off the screen but don't worry it won't)

reboot and enjoy

if lilo is returning an unsupported bitmap error, that means your video card (display adapter) does not support framebuffer resolution...
