Add splash animation and boot screen to openSuSE10.3

In spite of Xmas time I have to work. Just start testing of openSuSE10.3 version. After installation I've noted that I lost graphic boot screen. So here how to cure it:

First check out /boot/grub/menu.lst file. You should have there vga=0x317 parameter. If you missed this add it there. Don't ask how ;)

Second give such command via terminal:
# mkinitrd -s 1024x768

After reboot computer and wow, it appears ok ...

Have a note, your graphic desktop and boot screen should have the same resolution for best result.
