i tried running mk_initrd and failed

Well mk_initrd is really an essential step in the boot splash thingy. If
it fails I'm not really all that surprised you don't get the graphics.

Did you get any error messages or anything?

using "/dev/hda3" as root device (mounted on "/")
no initrd required
rmdir: too few arguments
Try `rmdir --help' for more information.

OK, perhaps there's a bug in mk_initrd in 7.2 that causes it to not build when
there aren't any modules listed, even when it should add a boot splash.

Try add a module (say reiserfs) to INITRD_MODULES in /etc/rc.config, run
mk_initrd, make sure it's entered into lilo.conf, run lilo and reboot.
