Weird Tux Colours

On a slightly different thread, but related to the same Tux, is there a way to 
stop this tux from being displayed? It kinda messes up my terminal screen, 
and I think it also slows down boot time slightly (have been challenged to 
see how fast I can make a linux system boot with certain functionality 
enabled- don't ask). Anyhow, is there any kernel option I can pass? (e.g. in 
lilo.conf, a line I can use 'append=?' ?).

Any help appreciated.
