þÄ®âÐÖx, you are right, just make sure you do not edit something important to startup in the process of doin that tho.

You have to be careful of the color depth you save the images in, as the graphics mode on startup is set to 16 colors (no drivers have been loaded yet). Make sure you save your images as 16 color bitmaps or it won't display properly (or at all)

Hmmm.. when I extract the windows logo and was checking the properties on it it was saying it was 32-bit. Then when I replace the bitmap and save it does not save. I am assuming it didn't save because it is a system file which is also probably read-only.. which I will have to change to alter it.. is this correct?
