    ahh, that is a tough one, cause it is buried. If you are talking about the one on the login screen it is in the /etc/X11/gdm/Init/Default file if memory serves. But all that does is an "xsetroot #???" or something like that. To make the default background a picture you need some different xsetroot command, I just don't know what it is. man xsetroot might lead you in better directions.

    Use xloadimage -onroot. That will allow you to take most image formats, I think.

    man, I posted that answer after an 18 hour day and while not being sober, plus I haven't used RedHat in over a year. Go me!
