I'm not sure if that will affect the grub screen itself or not. :-(

Yeah, I don't know. I've never had to try before.

Another option, I suppose, would be to look at the settings on the monitor itself. Maybe there's something to rotate it in the hardware so it's presented in portrait to begin with?

right now i am trying to get fbsplash to work i have followed :

http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Fbsplash and http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Framebuffer

to get it to work but getting "Failed to start the splash daemon, error code 256".i had a initramfs so the command i was using was:

splash_geninitramfs --verbose --res NxN --append /path/to/initramfsimage theme.
