Change path to the image as per your system/choice.
Step 2: Compress it to the gz format
Step 3: Copy the compressed file to the GRUB directory
Copy file output from Step 2.
photo.xpm.gz in my case to /boot/grub directory
cp /home/domnic/grub-pics/photo.xpm.gz /boot/grub
Step 4: Edit GRUB config to set the image
Open the GRUB configuration file grub.conf or menu.lst depending on your system.
Change the following:
Reboot the system and voila you have your own custom boot screen.
