Changing background color selections in tiger 10.4.6

Is there anyway to add additional colors to the "solid Colors" option in the "Desktop and Screensaver" system preference?  I would like solid black, but the closest is a blue or gray.

Any ideas?

    Easy Cheesy!

    Go into a drawing program make a 6" Square, fill it with all black, save it as a file called "Black" as a .jpg to the desktop, or, follow the steps below to save it directly to the folders.

    Open the HD go to Library>Desktop Pictures and drag it in.

    Go down the list to Screen Savers and do the same.

    Happy computing!

    Well, that definately works, but it seems a little kludgy to me.  I would have thought apple would have a more direct approach for something like this...

    Thanks for the information!
