You can find a bootsplash graphic here: 

Personally, I use a scaled version of the these graphics along with 
splashutils <http://dev.gentoo.org/~spock/projects/gensplash/> in 
MiniMyth. I scaled the graphics to 640x480 so that they work with the 
least common denominator resolutions for monitors and televisions. I use 
splashutils because it does not require a kernel patch for the 
splashutils features that I need.

You can find the scaled graphics at 
<http://linpvr.org/minimyth/download/stable/latest/> in the file 
gar-minimyth-<version>.tar.bz2. The splashutils files including the 
graphics are located in the directory
