I'm following the directions at http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/254/ but I don't have a logo.sys file on my computer (only a hidden lo.sys file in C:\). What do I do?

The answer is in the link that you have in your question.

>>>Alternatively you can create three new BMP files for each screen, just make sure that the proportions of 320(w) x 400(h) are maintained. The file once finished should be 129,078 bytes.

if you are running windows me, you wont be able to locate the logo.sys. This is kind of funnny, even i myself can figure why, but for win98 you will be able to find it. Just from the find program tpye logo.sys you will be able to find it

Is it right that I definitely do not have a logo.sys file on my system?

If I create one, will that have any adverse effect?

Since there's no logo.sys file now, where abouts is my startup screen coming from???

The startup screen is built in the io.sys file. When it loads it checks for the existance of the logo.sys file and displays that, if it exists. If not, then it's using the image it has builtin.

As a test, you can download the win 98 versions here:
http://www.phish.marko.net/logo/98/index.html
and place them according to this:
LOGO.SYS - The startup screen, usually located in your C:\ directory.
LOGOW.SYS - The 'Please wait...' screen, usually located in your c:\windows directory.
LOGOS.SYS - The 'It's now safe to turn off your computer.' screen, usually located in your c:\windows directory.

Ah, so that's what the io.sys file is for. Do the other two screens have similar files in which they are built?
