Changing Xfce boot splash

I've been doing research, but getting many different results.

What is the easiest way to change the picture of the mouse in the circle to a custom picture?

I'm running the latest xubuntu if that matters.

Howdy.Well on slack 13.1 64 bit you would select settings/session and startup/splash.Then select the simple theme.Hit the configure button.Tick the box to select custom image and off you go.Hopefully the same applies on your xubuntu box.

Well, I set that splash screen, and it never appeared...possibly because I have it set to logon automatically.

I'm talking about the screen while the system is loading, before xfce has even booted....I didn't pay attention when I wrote the subject line, but it is incorrect.
