    Windows 98 startup screen

    I can find only two files on my system that approximate what I think ought to be the startup screens - Logos.sys and Logow.sys.

    I have played with these in Paintbrush and made subtle changes - they are in use - but neither is the screen I see when I reboot. The reboot splash screen appears almost instantly, then disappears during my AutoExec.bat, and re-appears briefly as Win.com gets loaded.

    Can anyone tell me the name of this mysterious third file and/or how to edit it?

    The third file is LOGO.SYS and lives in the root of the C: drive. If it's not there, whatever you place in the root with that name will be used.

    The only special thing about this bitmap file is that it is 320 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall in 96 dots per inch (resolution) at 256 colors. Use any photo editor or graphics program to make a bitmap to those specifications and rename it to LOGO.SYS. There are thousands of them scattered abour for downloading on the net too.

    Cheers!
