    Win98 Splash Screen

    Is there a way to replace the <img src=/S/puke.gif border=0 alt=puke width=60 height=15> M$ logo when booting up or shutting down with another picture?

    Edited by DaveA to make hot link

    Sure. I think all you have to do is replace logo.sys in your Windows directory with a bitmap of your choice, given the same name. However, for really playing around with splash-screens (on and off) get a tweaker called Tweak All 1.2.3 from my website at #11. Using this you can scan pictures to use directly from your scanner. (There is also a beta-version 2.0 available from their homepage. Just click the 'book' icon at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.abtons-shed.com/main/main.htm>#11)</A>.
    If you just want to turn off splash screens, edit MSDos.sys appropriately (remove the Read Only attribute first).

    You failed to state that you have to go to your "Freeware" page in order to find #11. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/smash.gif border=0 alt=smash width=30 height=26> <img src=/S/rtfm.gif border=0 alt=rtfm width=24 height=23>

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Sorry - my website is reached by clicking the blue part of my sig line, so didn't want #11 to be a hot-link. It actually refers to a position on one of my download pages, and not to the home site of the tweaker.
