Picture while loading

I want my application to start with a picture on the screen, until all loading is finished.
At the moment I have the wait cursor displayed on the existing screen.
How to do it ?

Hello David,
Good idea. This gives the user a feeling that something's happening.

In App_Start, I show the form at an early stage, send an image control
to the foreground and refresh the form. As the program is through I simply
dispose the image control.

Cheers
Robert

That I did and it is nice to see a picture until the gps catches up and the map appears.
still, the loading takes time and I prefer to show the picture immediately.
I guess it involves meddling with the operating system because the application is not in control until it has finished loading...
Anyway - thanks.
