AFAIK there is no way to change the login screen any more in Fedora.
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;
$ su
enter user/pass
root$cd /usr/share/backgrounds/goddard/default

normalish
standard
wide
goddard.xml

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
$: su
root$:cd /home
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

If you want to change also your splash screen, you can install plymouth.
Goddard still uses plymouth on its splash screen.
