Changing the tux image on the command prompt

Y'know that lil pic of tux on top of the command prompt from startup...

Can I change that pic to something else, and if so how (and does the image have to be a specific size and shape?)?

You must be talking about framebuffer(video=xxx in lilo), in order to have high resolutions in console. I use video=normal, I like the default console more and don't have any picture. I you mean this picture, i think you need a kernel recompile to do that, but i'm not sure.
