How I can add startup screen to red hat 5.0 ?

Just patch the kernel...

Really it's a kernel issue... because kernel won't stop printing messages during boot. But if you want to try something with latest 2.1 kernels, I think you can try to display an image with any svgalib utility in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit having disabled kernel messages (echo 0 0 0 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/printk) before.

but you should reset printk values after this... (echo 6 4 1 7 > ...)

I also remember some little graphic penguin with some contributed patch but I don't know if it can patch a new kernel... And it wasn't SO GOOD...

Please define startup screen?

You mean instead of login and password coming up, you want a simple menu?  or after login and password?
