Yes; see branding-*-bootloader and -bootsplash packages
(the latter might need initrd regeneration and the former
might need LILO reinstall).  The image is /boot/splash/message
but the format is pretty custom.

gfxboot splash screens are sparsely documented, unfortunately.
I'll try to ask folks for the better links in case none of
prepackaged images suits you.

A brave/dedicated soul can also learn how to package their own
ones though ;-)  Some terse Russian docs are here:

Again, if you're after a custom/reproducible solution I'm willing
to help you learn.
