That sounds pretty cool, I'd like to have nothing display until X is
running ... so I don't have to see the video card advertisement
(WINFAST Logo, not the nvidia thing from X), the bios report and
energy star logo, the preboot report screen, the grub menu and
countdown, and finally the Ubuntu boot animation.
I'm using a winfast gf 8400 with a dvi to hdmi cable, for what it's worth.
