hey
got question/problem for /boot/loader

system: freeBSD 8.1-RELEASE GENERIC

trying to get a bitmap onscreen for bootup
------------------------------------------------------------

have read man page for all boot associated stuff (loader.conf...)
and followed instructions
using following values in /boot/loader.conf :

bitmap_load="YES"        # have tried commenting this out also
vesa_load="YES"
splash_bmp_load="YES"
bitmap_name="/boot/splash.bmp"

the splash.bmp size is about 900x700
does not work
am using /boot/loader.rc as preset (includes loader.4th and beastie.4th)
