Lilo 22.2 already has everything you need in it.  No patching is required.

Furthermore, the tarballs I've uploaded have had documentation galore in
them about how to install the graphical splash screens.  See the README,
FAQ, and lilo.conf-sample (or whatever I named it).  Installing them
merely amounts to putting the bmp file into /boot (for wont of anywhere
more reasonable to stash it) and then pasting four lines into the global
section of your lilo.conf before you run lilo and reboot to see it.  The
sample config file should make things painfully obvious.
