Change your boot screen
Authored by: cashxx on May 21, '10 10:42:16AM

With 10.5 and 10.6 you can do the following if you want to push the settings out manually:
1) Download BootXChanger and put in your pic you want. It will install the picture named BootLogo.png into /System/Library/CoreServices/
2) Then get a copy of com.apple.Boot.plist from /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/.

Push those two files to clients in the same locations and all the clients should have the new Boot Logo on startup. The com.apple.Boot.plist sets the path to the BootLogo.png file location and OS X reads this file on boot up and looks for the pic.

File Locations:
/System/Library/CoreServices/BootLogo.png
/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist
