If you mean the first thing displayed when you bootup then that string is embeded in the system file IO.SYS.

Does that help?
If not, could you clarify your question a little.

You're loking for the file called lo.sys.  it is mentioned in the msdos.sys by either turning it on (LOGO=1) or off (LOGO=0).  I don't know if anything can be displayed on this screen unless a program is written to dynamicly alter the image file as the boot procedure is executed.
