Question How do i change that little screen after login?


I have RH9. After the login screen while everything is loading up, there is a little box in the middle of the screen that reads "Redhat" and shows the various symbols at the bottom of the "things" loading up (each one lights up after loading I guess)

What is that thing called? How do I change the look of that startup box?
I don't really care for the look of the redhat stuff, rather have some KDE stuff.

Thanks

Why don't you take a look at:

www.kde-look.org

There's a 'splash screen' link on the left.
If you go there and select any of them, you get a 'download' link and a 'how to install' link..
Here's what it says:

'How to install a splash screen

# Open konqueror
# Create the directory ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/pics
# Browse to ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/pics
# Move and uncompress your new splash screen file into the konqueror window
# Have fun! :-) '

He is talking about the kernel splash (ie the penguin that appears at bootup, which RH changed to their logo). If you compile a kernel not from Red Hat you will get a penguin picture. If you want fancier stuff, you will need to get stuff from bootsplash.org .
