Is it possible to have a very simple boot screen, ala Windows XP and
MacOSX? It should be animated so that people can see if the computer
is frozen?

Basically it would be very good if as soon as you went into grub,
about 2 seconds later you had a graphical boot screen.

Can this be done without using X? Is there some sort of really simple
X server-style application that could do this?
