Open system-library-core services-systemstarter_folder control click on the quartzDisplay.bundle icon then click on the show package contents. in the resulting window open the resources folder and there is the startup and login screen pdf you can swap that or edit it in photoshop.

To change the login scren you have to bypass the Mac OS X security shield you can go about it in three different ways.

Restart in Mac OS 9, if your Mac is capable of it. Doing so bypasses the objections you'll get from Mac OS X as you try to hack the system settings.

You can log in as the Root account user.

Command +drag the icon you want outta the system folder, edit a copy of it
(preserve the original just in case) and then command +drag it back into place.

PS. When you drag OS X promts you to enter your administrators name + pass when you start to drag an icon

I hope this helps :p

I did what you said and I changed the pdf. It changed the Loading screen graphic but it did not change the login graphic. What else can I do.
