Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Distribution: RHEL 5 with Pieces of this and that.

That was not an option in the KDE version from the REDHAT 9 release. There might be a tool you can download to add this to that release. But this how I did it with that version.
The way I did it
1. go into /home/username/.kde/share/apps
2. mkdir ksplash
3. cd to ksplash
4. mkdir pics
5. cd pics
6. copy the images from what ever splash you want here.
7. Logout and back in.
This should work if I remember right.
Another option is upgrade to KDE 3.3.1 and it has the ability to select the splash screen like in the above replys. If you upgrade to KDE 3.3.1 then at /home/username/.kde/share/apps/ksplash you will mkdir Themes. There is where you will copy a folder of the new splash with an theme.rc file in it. Then you can select it from the Control Center/ Apper****/Splash. You need to have all your splash screen choices in there before open the Control Center or it will not show them.
wizard69, it appears you are using Gnome not KDE (the list of options that you give is exactly the same as my list, in gnome). Gnome is also the default in RH9 (although confusingly its made to look a bit like kde!)
Unfortunately I haven't been able to find the splash screen changing option (I am looking for it at the moment!)
