Well…the splash screen was not centered. I think this was because the installation detected my monitor as “generic plug and play” with more limited capabilities than it really has. I changed the display settings in Gnome so I can get 1152 x 864 at 75Hz, but this left the splash screen off center. Here is the fix:

Edit /etc/usplash.conf to set the correct x and y resolution.

Run: sudo update-initramfs -k all -u

The update-initramfs needs the “-k all” option to update all kernels. In my case I have the generic and real time kernels.
