    Howto : GfxBoot ( Grub like suse )

    Gfxboot makes grub look nicer but with the same features
    In this howto you will install gfxboot and a suse theme for it, soon I'll make an ubuntu one
    Ok, let's start

    Download the grub-gfxboot.deb
    And the message.suse

    First remove your old grub
    sudo apt-get remove grub
    Then Install the gfxboot-grub
    sudo dpkg -i grub-gfxboot_0.97-5_i386.deb
    then we're going to move the message
    sudo cp message.suse /boot/grub/ # the suse can be replaced by the one you downloaded
    Then edit your menu.lst

    sudo cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst_backup
    sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
    and make it use gfxboot
    gfxmenu /boot/grub/message.suse # the suse can be replaced

    Then do :
    sudo grub
    grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
     (hdx,y) # this will be the output
    grub> root (hdx,y)
    grub> setup (hdx)
    -- Howto make you own theme --

    mkdir /home/name/whatever
    cpio -i < /boot/grub/message.suse # replace it by the name of you message
    edit the pictures
    sudo ls . |cpio -o > /boot/grub/
    Reboot and enjoy
