Yes, I've fiddled with the color settings some more and it seems grub 
prefers a standard vga color rgb xpm. Anyway, I've now included an 
image with fblogo into the kernel, so I've got an (allmost) total 
graphical bootup. At least now my ignorant friends don't ask me if I'm 
still using dos when I boot up :)
