Boot manager - grub - change the theme?

Hi all,

During install from the CD there is a nice graphical boot loader.  Is there any way to transfer this to install on my HDD?

The ISO uses a different bootloader called ISOLINUX, which is part of the Syslinux Project.

No problem. Using the .cfg file and the background image from the ISO is easy.


Or you can make your own. Here's mine:

It looks a lot better on a 16:9 monitor, trust me.
