The following site explains how to disable it but looking at the
document will explain how to enable it as well.

Problem is, I know mine is configured right, I even have another computer
to compare it with. My suspicions are that the kernel (in my case the
2.4.16) wasn't compile to allow the splash screen. I can boot back up with
the 2.4.4 kernel that came with SuSE 7.2 and the splash screen works fine,
but the 2.4.16 kernel from SuSE's upgrade/kernel directory doesn not.
