Does anybody know how to change the Start-up and Shut-down screens in Win.98 2nd Edition? I think it is done in the regedit but not sure exactly how to do it!

Rather than regedit,Ms splash screens are changed in the Io.sys file in your root directory. Startup screen is <logo.sys> & shutdown is <logow.sys> and <logos.sys>.Save these as <myoldlogo.sys>,<myoldlogow.sys> and <myoldlogos.sys>.Now you are ready to create or download a new set of screens.If all does not go well rename the old files as they were and save to C:\WINDOWS.When finished with new screens name them as they were before you saved them and save to C:\WINDOWS.Remember when creating screens that they must be 127k and that is 256 colors*320 pixels * 400 pixels.Any logo.sys file that is not will be rejected by the startup routine.Sure you want to try? Sure you do,your a DoItYourselfer.....Mike
