    Default Boot option highlight

    Hey guys, don't know if it's me or not, but on the boot option screen the highlight is black. With a black background it's kinda hard knowing which option is highlighted.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    just comment in the /boot/grub/menu.lst the 'splashimage' entry..
    to change colors use the 'color' entry(see grubs FAQ, Docs, man, wtw)

    Default Simple fix....

    It's not hard to manipulate the GRUB file for yourself. Here's what i did, it just won't show the backtrack bootsplash, but it'll do until pureh@te and others are finished.

    -First find the file by opening the bt4.iso with something like UltraISO.
    -Navigate to /boot/grub/menu.lst and open file
    -Comment out the "splashimage...." at the top by putting a '#' infront of it
    -Add color options like below

    Code:
    #splashimage=/boot/grub/bt4.xpm.gz
    color green/black black/light-gray
    -Now save the file to a new location, wherever you want, just keep the file name so it overwrites existing menu.lst

    -Move the new file to the iso by dragging to UltraISO (with that folder open) and when prompted select "yes" to overwrite the old one.

    -Save iso by file->save, and enjoy


    Hope this helps anyone that doesn't feel like waiting.

    p.s- my first post so sry if i'm in the wrong spot for this, still navigating your amazing site... props to all who are behind it
