  1. okay so maybe this is simple, maybe not. i did a search for it and found nothing so i was wondering if anyone knew the way to change your win98 startup screen. i got the shutdown screens changed but i cant get the startup screen to take. arrgh.
    i found a text file explaining how to do it to win 95, but that only worked for the shutdown screens.so what i really need to know is this; 1) what is the name of the file i have to replace, and 2)what directory do i save it to. Oh ya, 3)is the size rewquired to be 320 by 400?

    any help from you tech savvy surfers would be highly appreciated. thank you.

    Or the partition where IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS are located
    See 1)
    No, but that's the resolution it will be displayed. Wider/narrower picture will look quite surreal.

    well, thats where i have saved it, and thats what i saved it as, but it still shows the lame startup screen. maybe i missed something
    i will delete the logo.sys that i made and move io sys and replace it. do you think that will work?

    If you tuped in 'Windows 98 Startup Screen' or 'Windows 98 Boot Screen' you would get multiple search findings telling you how to change it.
