    I would think a png file would be ok but my knowledge of Linux doesn't go that far back. If you don't already know here is some formats on this site Image Formats for the Web
    Also i guess if you want the screen saver to move then that is another thing. If Gimp was developed back when slackware was around then Gimp makes screensavers as far as i know.

    I'm surprised that you're running an distro that is that old, a prctice that is not usually considered secure. But you want to run jukeboxes with it? That sounds really cool, although I would have opted for a modern distro.
    You might get more help if you can get the moderators to move this to the Slackware Linux Help - Linux Forums. Good luck, Kurt

    use a multi layered gimp file and then use file converter for linux to turn it to a screen saver then use the command line to put it in the database
