This provides both a console bitmap and silent bootsplash similar to the Lilo bootsplash I posted earlier.
I have only tested this with Mandrake.
Please note I take no credit for the original artwork which was posted previously.
I only added the missing resolutions and console bitmaps along with cleaning up the configuration.
I may have missed the 640x480 console bitmap, but you can easily adapt the 800x600 bitmap for this.
I prefer the slightly visible smaller tux on the right side of a console screen where it is far less obtrusive, yet manages to get oogles from the non-initiated.
