SuSE 9.1 Login icons

now I think this question deserves to be in the n00b section so here it is, I would like to know how to change the startup login display pictures in SuSE 9.1 Professional. I can't say I've looked too hard to find a way to change them but in the Yast Users section it doesn't look like you can. I would like them changed however as they are some of the cheapest and ugliest looking images I've seen. One is a racecar, which I can sort of handle, but the second user gets a fat pig face as the image icon? Very, very random. Any help would be good.

1) Log In into KDE as root
2) Click on the SuSE Icon in the Panel Bar (bottom left corner on the screnn)
The program menu will be displayed
3) Start from there "Control Center"

- OR - instead step 2) and 3) open a console window and start the control center by typing
and Enter

4) Select "System administration" from the list (left handed frame)
5) Now select "Login Manager"
6) Click on the "Users" Tab in the right hand window

On the right side you will find a section entitled user Images

Click on the "User:" Drop-Down List to select the user for whom you would like to change the log-In Icon

Click now on the Icon below the the Drop-Down list in order to change the Icon.

A File Open Dialog will be displayed. There you can select the Image which will be displayed for
that particular user on the log-on screen.
