Some IBM pcs and many other brands ship with a logo which displays at the very beginning of boot. How is this done? how can I use my logo instead?

The logo file your refering too is the LOGO.SYS file (the shutdown logos are called LOGOS.SYS and LOGOW.SYS and are located in the C:\Windows directory).  These are just simple bitmaps you can make in MSPAINT (or any other program your good with).  Only thing you have to know is that is has to be 128k when it is done, and in 24bit bitmap format.  The best thing to do is load your LOGO.SYS file with MSPAINT or another editing program and edit it and use that as your template.

Which logo do you mean, the little logo in the top right hand corner (EPA) or a large, full screen logo?
At any rate, you can change both of these using a program called CBROM, assuming you have an Award bios. You have to copy your bios from memory using the flash program, then modify the BIN file, then reflash.

Nope, not those pictures. I'm talking about the ones that are shown even before the bios is accesible. (or maybe slightly after) but at any rate, Before the Operating System has anything to do with it.

This is hard coded into the BIOS itself.  Check out the following links for information on changing this.

All were helpful. The one with the link to the retail software was least useful. But thanks anyway!
