Hello all,
I'm trying to find information on how to change the look of my terminal. Not just the boot screen and dmesg, but also after the login prompt and before "startx". Kind of like what I have seen done for gentoo ;

* Change the font: style, size, & color...
* Change the background: color or image...

I've found plenty of tutorials online explaining how to enable the "boot splash" effect but I'm having trouble finding the images under the required "648x 480" maximum bitmap format...

Where can I actually find images that are cool looking in that format at 256 colors???
...or better yet...
What would be the right app to convert ".PNG", ".JPG", in 24bit down to
".BMP " at 8bit???

Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thanx
