    If you are using gnome you can change the login screen by running terminal, login as root with su then gdmsetup

    Splash screen not sure, never wanted to change that so never looked into it. Hopefully someone else will advise you on that.

    If you are using KDE3.5 you can change the splash screen with Control Centre > Splash Screen and the login screen with Control Centre > System Administration > Login Manager (Click on Administrator Mode). You can also download login screens from Eyecandy for your KDE-Desktop - KDE-Look.org in their KDM Themes section, they also tell you where to put the files etc.

    Never did understand the need to customize the login screen... typically, you
    never see it.

    Same goes for my desktop... it's plain black. no point using memory and cpu
    cycles to display something that I never see...

    There's a writeup somewhere here in the forums about changing the login and
    splash screens, you might search for 'splash' or 'splash screen'

    Are you using KDM or GDM?
