I suggest that you don't try this. If you do something wrong, the fix is not that easy, and usually requires a reinstall of XP. I have seen many people screw up their PC trying to change the boot screen.

Stardock makes a prog that does this for you. It seems pretty safe too. Easily uninstallable.

You have to have the skin you want as well as the bootskin program. Install the program and run it. Then tell it where the skin you downloaded is and it will do the rest.
