I think this is more a blfs-support question, but anyway, have a look at

It's a program that shows a splash screen and progress bar while your 
bootscripts are running, and shuts off when X starts.  I think that's 
the best solution for what you want, as older ideas offering similar 
functionality required kernel patches to work.

I've been meaning to try and figure out how to configure it, but haven't 
had the time.

Good luck.
