Probably not as horribly as it is on my system :-).
For some reason I get a screen (regardless of splash image)
with total gibberish as if the video is completely out of wack.
If I turn off the splash option and use plain text menu,
it looks fine.
I think this has something to do with the video mode
switching that goes on as it moves from bios display
to grub display to chainloading a different grub.
Sometimes the 2nd grub is scrambled, but it happens
very infrequently when an FC5 partition is the 2nd
grub, and virtually 100% of the time when FC6t2 is
the 2nd grub.
I kinda liked the fedora drip too - you oughta bring
it back :-).
