    Tested Imagine BootX with Tiger on my iBook G4 and it worked just fine.

    I use the attached image on a Mercury colored background.

    Hmm... I have to ask first... is this change permanent? Meaning, if I reformat and reinstall OS X, will the startup screen go back to the default?

    With BootX, there's an option to restore the default apple logo on startup.
    I've also attached my new image just for kicks.
