You can change the background, but that's all.
To change the background, choose a wallpaper while logged in, and set it to default. That will be the login wallpaper. You can still have a different wallpaper as a user, but the default remains set.
you can change the login screen on fedora 13 64 bit as follows:
check the files on this directories;
you can see the file goddard.jpg on the folders normalish,standard,wide
now create your desired loginscreen image on your /home folder and rename it as goddard.jpg
open terminal again
root/home$: mv goddard.jpg /usr/share/backgrounds/goddard/default/standard
if ask to overwrite the file goddard.jpg - type y (yes)
then do it also for the remaing folders
mv goddard.jpg /usr/share/backgrounds/goddard/default/wide
mv goddard.jpg /usr/share/backgrounds/goddard/default/normalish
#this method can change your login screen without editing the goddard.xml file
