Download the Syslinux package and read the documentation:
You can add a background to the menu.
You need vesanenu.c32 instead of menu.c32 for this function:
MENU BACKGROUND background
For vesamenu.c32, sets the background image. The background
can either be a color (see MENU COLOR) or the name of an image
file, which should be 640x480 pixels and either in PNG or JPEG
Or you can add a real spash menu (which will disappear after the timeout.
++++ DISPLAY FILE FORMAT ++++
DISPLAY and function-key help files are text files in either DOS or UNIX
format (with or without <CR>). In addition, the following special codes
<CAN>filename<newline> <CAN> = <Ctrl-X> = ASCII 24
If a VGA display is present, enter graphics mode and display
the graphic included in the specified file. The file format
is an ad hoc format called LSS16; the included Perl program
"ppmtolss16" can be used to produce these images. This Perl
program also includes the file format specification.
The image is displayed in 640x480 16-color mode. Once in
graphics mode, the display attributes (set by <SI> code
sequences) work slightly differently: the background color is
ignored, and the foreground colors are the 16 colors specified
in the image file. For that reason, ppmtolss16 allows you to
specify that certain colors should be assigned to specific
Color indicies 0 and 7, in particular, should be chosen with
care: 0 is the background color, and 7 is the color used for
the text printed by Syslinux itself.
