Why add it to lilo? Why not have a graphics viewer throw up the
screen while your init scripts run? Just put it first in your rc
scripts. Certainly not as nice as the lilo hack, but a lot easier to
implement quickly. You'd still see the kernel messages, but the init
messages would be hidden from the end user.

TTFN,

Sumner
