in mandrake 8.2, you can change the user's splash screen by changing the pics in /home/"user"/.kde3/share/apps/ksplash/pics...that's how i did it for my account, but for root or others the files are elsewhere, perhaps in your /opt/kde3/share/apps/ksplash directory somewhere...yeah.

all nice and peachy, works great. (thanks kde-look.org) now...

how do I change that annoying grayish blue color in the background of the splash before my desktop actually loads?
