Menu.lst may not be to blame. Either vga is not set, you don't have
a boot splash associated with your initrd or your splash image size
does not match the size of the image grub expects to load. I'm
going to assume your kernel is built to use boot splash.

If you run 'mkinitrd' as root, at the end, it'll list the boot
splash theme and size. If it doesn't list splash, you can do
'mkinitrd -s 1024x768'

That mkinitrd -s thing fixed it partially, thanks! Read what it did
in Dominique's post. Still get the text scrolling after the
bootsplash screen though. :(

Add splash=silent to the command line at the boot screen. Then it should
stay until you log in. If you want it permanent, then add it to the
command line in menu.lst

It's already there, unless you think I should add it to the other parts of
menu.lst also. My menu.lst follows:
