No, I haven't. It never occured to me that this might work.
But it does. Thank you very much!

Cheers, Michael.

Did you try just using echo? Something like:

menuentry "Boot linux" {
   echo "Please wait..."
   linux /path/to/vmlinuz options...
   initrd /path/to/initrd.gz

Good luck, keep us informed :-)
