I think you'll find what you're looking for here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto

Section 6 is about boot splashes

I hope this helps

edit- startupmanager may be an option for you. Its in the repositories or you can open a terminal and use "sudo apt-get install startupmanager" (without the quotes). To use it type sudo startupmanager into a terminal

gfxboot is another option, it provides much better support for graphics, but will require some compiling and the setting up of custom umessage files.

I think SUSE uses this...

Not for the faint hearted though

You may want a 64 bit deb package so I've attached one :)
