glad to read this! thanks! :-)

here as an other idea a splash i played a little bit
after the first request for a new splash screen.
i don't sent it to the list because i didn't really
like it but now i think why not.

i took the 2.6-splash and FreeBSDified it a little

maybe that's also a way to for a gnome/fbsd splash?

the problem with this is that we must wait for the new
splash or in other words we can only create it after 2.8
is out and then maybe the layout of the next original
splash is so different that it isn't possilble to do it
in this way.
