This jpeg needs to be converted to xpm format, then gzip-ped.

sudo aptitude install imagemagick
convert ubuntugrub.jpg ubuntugrub.xpm
gzip ubuntugrub.xpm

After that, move the ubuntugrub.xpm.gz file to the directory /boot/grub/splashes.

sudo mkdir /boot/grub/splashes
sudo mv ubuntugrub.xpm.gz /boot/grub/splashes

After that, edit the file /boot/grub/menu.lst and edit /add this line somewhere near the top of the file:

splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splashes/ubuntugrub.xpm.gz

Sounds easy enough eh?

Very nice, thx for the work! The only comment I have is that the words at the bottom in white are a little hard to read on the background,but that's very minor. This is my favorite splash...Thanks again.

Better to call it splash.xpm.gz and put it in /boot. And the run sudo update-grub.

I tried that method, however I got this from "sudo update-grub" Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
Testing for an existing GRUB menu.lst file ... found: /boot/grub/menu.lst
Searching for splash image ... none found, skipping ...
Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-16-generic
Found kernel: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic
Found kernel: /boot/memtest86+.bin
Updating /boot/grub/menu.lst ... done

Try this guide:
http://ubuntu.wordpress.com/2006/03/21/add-a-grub-splash-image/ (for Ubuntu)
It suggets making a link to the splash file:
sudo ln -s /boot/grub/splashimages/whatever.xpm.gx /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
And then updating grub:
sudo update-grub
It worked fine for me!
