Talking GDM, RedHat 7.3 & Ximian

Just a quick questions here. I installed RH 7.3, then installed the Ximian Desktop. Now when it installs, it replaces the GDM Splash screen (The one that shows GNOME Loading it's components) with the Ximian screen, how do I get the RedHat one back? I looked in /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf ut was unable to find anything. I could change everything except for the spalsh screen. Anyway, there's got to be somewhere I'm not looking, and if someone could let me know I'd appreciate it alot. Thanks in Advance!!

not positive on 7.3 because I'm using 8.0 now, but in 8.0 there is a folder called usr/share/pixmaps/splash or usr/shcre/splash (dont remember for sure) but the folder contains the redhat splash image. if you can find that splash folder, it should contain the ximian image and possibly the redhat image. just rename the redhat one to match the gnome one and it will use it instead. If you do happen to find the ximan image, hook me up and send it to me. I assume you have the one with the german sunset on it. That one is way cool compared to the one in RH 8.0.
