So today I went to install the splashy package on my Hardy desktop and it seems I was bit by bug 92276. There are a few duplicated so I went ahead and updated the bughelper-data files by adding a splashy file. The issue seems to be that when the package installs, it doesn’t add vga=791 splash to /boot/grub/menu.lst and causes this error. Its in universe so perhaps a MOTU can reexamine the package. All that needs to be done is add the appropriate lines in GRUB. There are some instructions at http://splashy.alioth.debian.org/wiki/faq

I’ll update the long abandoned bug diary tomorrow with this information.
