I would like to install splashutils as described in the newsletter from April 18, '05 (http://www.gentoo.org/news/en/gwn/20050418-newsletter.xml). However, it appears that these instructions are not compatible with genkernel, because the instructions require making and using an initrd, but I'm already using the one created by genkernel.

I found this link, http://wiki.gentoo-italia.net/index.php/Fbsplash_-_Avvio_grafico, which seems to indicate the the procedure is to supply genkernel itself with the 'gensplash' arguments (genkernel --menuconfig --gensplash=emergence all) but I was wondering if anyone had the full instructions before trying this, as genkernel takes several hours on my box.
