1) Use any software you want to make the display show exactly what you would like the boot screen to be. WinTest is probably the easiest.

Here is a hint for WinTest: Set up the scrolling marquee first, then edit the rest of the screen.

2) Save the screen to the EEPROM:

\009\005

3) Instruct the display to show your screen at boot and leave it up until a character is received by the display:

\009\003

4) Enjoy!

If you run WinTest, you can just "type" to the LCD by clicking in the white "edit" box (and you can also use the arrow keys to move around the display). Once the LCD shows what you want, you just send the \009\005 and \009\003 and that becomes the new boot screen.

When you say:

Do you mean you type those codes into the lil white bar? To send them?

Thanks

\009?

The code \008 is backspace and code \010 is LineFeed, but code \009 is documented as "not used" (ref: p. 4 section "Display Codes" v1.x pdf doc). What does it do exactly? Do you have an updated document for us to view?
