Ubuntu 10.10 using grub2
we cant find the /boot/grub/menu.lst file as in previous versions,
so what we need to do is
INSTALL SOME SPLASH IMAGES, WHICH ARE IN "tga" FORMAT, not in "xpm.gz"
sudo apt-get install grub2-splashimages
EDIT THE FOLLOWING FILE
sudo gedit /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme
find the specified line in the file
