Find your XF86Config or xorg.conf file and locate a section that looks like this:
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nvidia"
	VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
	BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
EndSection
Now add the following line before 'EndSection":
Code:
Option "NoLogo" "1"
That will disable the nVidia boot screen

Thanks, but how do I change it? Instead of it showing the nvidia logo I want to put a pic of something else, how do I do that?

Not sure if that's possible. I have however seen several pages about making a bootsplash for your box.
e.g.

Check google for more
