This is what I've been working on referencing back to one of my posts referring to grub being hacked.
Finally got it working as intended for the most part using fedoras grub2. This means only users of Fedora with grub2 need try doing this when I have finished correcting a couple of bugs( not really bugs but options that need to be fixed for a better look.
See the attachment Grub-Spalsh.
This is NOT just a background for grub but the hole enchilada, background image, boot menu and icons.
If you have any suggestions from looking at the attached image please let me know.
Update. just another day or so and I'll have the how-to complete. I've also updated the boot splash to give it a little more appeal from the original screen shot. Add menu options to get to the grub menu itself like e for edit boot line and such. See the new attachment. Also I've decided that I'm going to zip it and make it available on the web since there are many files included that were not previously included in the original setup. When I have the download site setup completed it will be available to all who so desire to use it. I'll post the site address within the next day or so.
Sorry for the long delay people.
I've run into some personal issues that need attending to that will consume most of my time but I will continue to work on this when my time allows to do so. Everything does work as it is currently setup but there is much to be done yet. Therefore I'm making the link to the files available now and will update as time permits. The how to document can be confusing at spots as reported by some testers. So read it in full first!
Here's the link for the how-to document and you will find the link to download the files needed inside this document.

Also glennzo has made a great install script that will do the work for you!
Glennzo feel free to post your install script to help users install this package. I'll be in touch with the updates as soon as I have them completed.
Again THANK YOU GLENNZO for the install script.
I know this setup works on F17 but for F16 I can't really say as I have no F16 machine for testing. As I said in one of my posts you MUST be running Grub2 version 1.99 for this to work. So if you have this grub2 version it may or may not work in F16 since some things may or may not be applicable to your installation of grub 1.99 as reported by some testers.
