1) Navigate to:

HKEY USERS\ .DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

2) Double click the wallpaper value, and type in the full path of your image and the filename.

3) To tile the image set "TileWallPaper" to 1

4) To Stretch the wallpaper set "WallPaperStyle" to 2

1. copy windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe to windows\system32\mykrnl.exe
2. start Resource Hacker{SOFT} and open windows\system32\mykrnl.exe
3. the startup screen bitmaps are 1, 8, and 10 - you only need to edit number 1 bitmap
4. select Actions/Save [Bitmap . . .] and save bitmap 1 to your hard drive. Since you are not editing ntsokrnl, you do not need to save the 3 bitmaps for going back to the original later - they are all saved within the file, ntsokrnl.exe !!
5. open the bitmap in Photoshop - oddly - it will be completely black
6. click Image/Mode/Color Table . . . and load the 16-color Palette
7. suddenly the image will show up - so strange !!!
8. edit the image or replace it - using the same size and the same palette
9. save the image, go back to Resource Hacker, and select Actions/Replace Bitmap
10. save the file mykrnl.exe
11. edit boot.ini to point to the new kernel file - simply add /kernel=mykrnl.exe to the end of the WinXP line. This example is for a dual-boot system where C drive has Win98 and D drive has WinXP. The boot.ini file is on the C drive :
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /KERNEL=Mykrnl.exe
C:\ = "Microsoft Windows 98 SE"

12. Done !!! To go back to the original splash screen, just remove the text, "/KERNEL=Mykrnl.exe"

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedt32, and then click OK.
In the Registry Editor window, locate the following registry key:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
In the right pane, double-click ScreenSaveActive.
In the Edit String dialog box, type 0 in the Value data box, and then click OK.
Click Exit on the File menu to quit Registry Editor.
The logon screen saver is turned off.
