got question/problem for /boot/loader

system: freeBSD 8.1-RELEASE GENERIC

trying to get a bitmap on screen for bootup

have read man page for all boot associated stuff (loader.conf...)
and followed instructions
using following values in /boot/loader.conf :

bitmap_load="YES"        # have tried commenting this out also

the splash.bmp size is about 400x300 (also 900x700 as alternative size)
this size fits with available vid-modes within the vesa module
does not work
am using /boot/loader.rc as pre-set (includes loader.4th and beastie.4th)
