MS Windows XP - change boot picture

This is cool! Mark Russinovich just "discoverd" a new boot.ini switch for winXP and 2003.

Use this switch to have Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 display an installable splash screen instead of the standard splash screen. First, create a 16-color (any 16 colors) 640x480 bitmap and save it in the Windows directory with the name Boot.bmp. Then add "/bootlogo /noguiboot" to the boot.ini selection.
