Re: Boot Screen
What do you call a "boot screen". Do you mean red hat graphical boot - rhgb?

Probably- I remember messing with it once, try the /boot folder, I think that's where it was. I'll check when I get home.Emotions are the key to the soul.

the /boot folder includes only grub splash image but nth for rhgb. When I wanted to change the rhgb image I've downloaded the source rpm and did my own patched rpm with different images.
If you're referring to the grub splash image, then it's located in /boot/grup/ bf default and referred to in the /boot/grub/grub.conf. There are some specifications reguarding the size and colordepth of the image. Here is a quick overview of how to make your jpegs useable as a grub splash screen:
If you're referring to the bootsplash image that you see while your kernel is booting (after grub, before login), then you'll need to edit the picture is /etc/bootsplash/default/images. If you just edit the image, leaving it the same, then you'll have to run a command to replace the splash image.
splash -s -f /etc/bootsplash/default/config/bootsplash-your-resolution.cfg > /boot/initrd-bootsplash"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
