Since this is pre-login, it's the display manager's splash screen, not 
the desktop environment's. I'm typing this on a C7 laptop under KDE, but 
I still use GDM as display manager - and I don't see that splash screen 
you describe (though I may have configured it away, I can't remember).
Which DM are you using?
