The following files should be customized so as to not confuse your site

splash.lss
the .lss file format is a ascii based picture format. It only supports
16 colors but you can customize what those colors are when you generate
the file.

As an example, to create the Scientific Linux (and example) splash.lss
files, a picture was created, initially in a png format, and then
converted with the following command

pngtopnm syslinux-splash.png | ppmtolss16 \#020202=0 \#c6c6c6=1 \#f5bf0f=2 \#b7810a=3 \#e5e5e5=4 \#dedede=5 \#e7b50d=6 \#fefefe=7 \#d49a0b=8 \#a16c06=9 \#565656=10 \#ababaa=11 \#4e3f27=12 \#7e7e7e=15 > splash.lss

Note: These colors also determine the text colors in boot.msg
For the default boot.msg colors
7=Main text
2=Highlight
15=Light Highlight
0=Background
