[opensuse] No boot screen anymore...

Hey gang,

After an kernel update with Yast (last year...took me a while to remember to
ask about this!), when I rebooted my (10.3) system, instead of a nice green
(or hope of hope, the penguins) screen, I get a bunch of words in a
large(ish) font scrolling by real fast before the login screen finally pops
up (it looks like the stuff one would later find in /var/log of somekind).

What happened? Why did a kernel update change my nice green screen to this
suddenly? How do I get my screen back instead of this humongous ugliness of
gibberish scrolling along? Is it something to do with menu.lst, which this is
what mine looks like:
