Using the emacs client stuff is good. However, to answer the OPs original
question, you can disable the splash screen with a command line switch (I think
it might be -no-splash or something similar). 

You can probably get rid of it through customize or X resources as well.
However, I'm not sure as I've never bothered (because I don't start emacs that
often - leave it running for weeks at a time).
