How to have new splash screens for FC5

i have FC5 installed with Windows XP on my system. when i boot my system boot manager comes in and ask me "FC5 will load in 10 sec". During this process i nice picture shows in the background. This picture stays even if i press a key in 10 sec time. When i press a key 2 options comes before me.
1. FC5
2. Window
background image is the same. i want to use a different image. can anyone tell me how to do it and where to find different variety of images.

That's the bootloader (a program that loads your operating systems). In this case it's probably GRUB, the other usual choice is LILO, but I don't think LILO does background images. I didn't know GRUB Legacy did, but well, I don't use them anyway

Visit GRUB site, or have a look at /boot/grub/menu.lst file for GRUB configuration; also read
man grub
