I want to change my startup / shutdown / safe to shutdown screens in Windows 2000 server.  For 95/98 they were stored as logo.sys and a couple variants and easily changed.  Win2k doesn't appear to have these files so any ideas on where the new files are at or any freeware software out there to change the screens would be most helpful!

The files in question are stored as resources in one of the Windows 2000 core DLLs, and fiddling with them is not recommended because you could easily render your system unbootable.

I wouldn't be asking if I was afraid to fiddle with system files.  I found a solution on my own anyway so consider the question closed.

For those interested search for "Resource Hacker" and you'll find the program that lets you change every graphic in any win32 executable with ease.

Well, you'd best ask a moderator in Community Support to delete the question, then.

Resource Hacker is really a great tool for modifying win32 dll and exe libraries.  It allows you to edit forms, text, images, and even some parts of the code in most programs.  This includes Windows system files.  Just a note, the file you need to modify to change the boot logo for Windows 2000 is C:\WinNT\System32\Ntoskrnl.exe.
