Gnome splash screen background colors wont change at bootup

Mandriva 2K6
Hi all, and thanks for having this forum.
I just got my M- 2K6 all customized and looking good. I replaced all the ugly icons and the psycho blue penguins with my own custom png. You would think that the French would have a more artsy looking desktop.
The only problem left is the blue background while Gnome is loading. I changed the background color in Applications>system>configuration>boot_and_init>GDM_configurator under the GTK+ Greeter tab, but I only see the color I selected if I log out and back in. When Gnome loads at bootup I always get Mandriva blue. I am thinking the default back ground color is specified in a statup script somewhere. Can anyone tell me where I might look so I can change that? The pale blue really clashes... thanks.
