Background Image

How do I change the background image of my system when it boots up to the login screen in X? Right now it just has the blue background with RH image in the upper left corner...

In KDE (and if you are using kdm) go to the control center and select under <system administration> the section <login manager>. Click admistrative mode - enter passwd - and click the backround tab.
