Does anyone know where the windows start-up screen image (the one with all the clouds) is stored?  Can I change it?

Thanks,
Justin

The files logo.sys to the root of your bootable drive (usually "C:\"), and logoW.sys, logoS.sys in your windows\ directory should give you all the start up and shutdown screens.  Edit them in MSpaint
