There are multiple boot screens: Grub- the first, displaying boot options.
USplash- displays while the Linux loads, with progress bar. Login Window, aka GDM theme. Gnome Boot Splash, when Gnome loads it greets you.

All of which can be added to/ changed. Usplash is difficult, but not impossible.

Checkout www.gnome-look.org

Take a look thru synaptic, I'm pretty sure thats where I found the tool to change my login screen.

And as combatwombat said, gnome-look.org has some awesome boot screens/themes/wallpapers etc..

Good luck
