I was playing with splash.xpm file but the result was disappointing.  I
uncompressed it and used Gimp to get the right picture size (resolution)
then replaced the picture with something else, a cut/paste from another
picture.  Saved it in xpm format and compressed it. After reboot the
picture doesn't come up as expected. What's wrong with the process?
