    Yes, it is under "Appeareance --> Splash" or something like that. I think there's 3-4 which comes with KDE. New ones, check kde-look.org

    Thats correct. Control-Center > Appearance and Themes > Splash screen.

    One can also download more KDE splash screens from http://www.kde-look.org/. Look at the left side of the page, where it says "splash screens". Click on that. Look at the various splash screens and download to a directory /home/yourname/splashscreens (or something like that) the screens that you want to keep. Don't decompress the files, but rather keep the files as number-name.tar.bz.

    Then go back to Control-Center > Appearance and Themes > Splash screen, select "Add" and navigate to your directory where you downloaded the splash screens (/home/yourname/splashscreens) and select the screens you want to add to your list. ...

    Good luck
