Default Bootskins question.

Hi, I just found out about bootskins today and it's awesome how you can customize the welcome and boot screen.
Question for bootskin users: I don't understand how to convert the files that aren't in .bootskin format to use.

I have the book "Hacking Windows Xp" By Steve Sinchak and I don't understand what it's saying on how to convert the files. Also, if you know any good sites for bootskins and welcome skins, please post. Thanks.

Well, I have a program that can only read .bootskin files. Really easy to use. Basically, I want to convert any files that will make it readable for my program.

Have you tried to check out Wincustomize.com? They have a whole section dedicated to bootskins.

Nvm People, I found out how to do it. Didn't require any converting at all. All I had to do was add .bootskin to the .zip folder and open it with bootskins, not WinRar. Some .zip already have the bootskin file inside, so I don't need to do the above. Thanks for the help people.
