    i dont think the default login manager in FC2 will let you have a login photo. login as root and i think in the "system" menu there'll be a link to "login manager" which will allow you to change login manager and themes. you can go to http://art.gnome.org/ to get login manager themes, but i know for sure that kdm (the KDE login manager) allows for login photos, so you may want to change to that.

    well i know that login photos work, because, as i said in my first post, i have created a new user and was able to use a login photo for that user, i was also able to have a login photo on my current user untill i had to restart the x windows server while logged it, i had some technical difficulties, that is the only reason i did it while logged in.
