how to change image on login screen

I would like to know how to change the little icon that appears on the login screen and that identifies me on my computer. I dont necessarily want to put a custom image I just want to change it to something else (maybe another SUSE provided icon) because I notice that when I use instant messaging it identifies me with that picture.

for some odd reason the default picture that SUSE linux chose for me was a flower, so I want to change it as soon as possible.

by the way I have SUSE 9.1

You need to go to Kcontrol -> System Administration -> Login Manager -> Users. There is an option there somewhere to administer and change login images for users.
