Question Change Login Screen on OpenSUSE 11.1


Hello,
I'm newbie on linux.

I've just installed OpenSUSE 11.1 yesterday.
I am using GNOME.

How to change login screen appearance (background etc., or using one of them in gnome-look.org)?
It seems there's no GUI for changing the login screen on SUSE 11.1.
I also want to disable user list on login screen.

I've been looking around, but nothing work for me.

Thanks in advance.

thank you paulsm4.

The links gave me some hints.
It seems that to customize the login screen,
I must edit /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.vendor/%gconf-tree.xml and add theme manually to the theme folder.
