I'm not a big fan of the default Aurora image used behind the login on Leopard. In the past to swap out this image I believe you'd just replace the image with one of your choice. (Aqua in Tiger and Aurora in Leopard)

This doesn't seem to work in Leopard.

Anyone know how to successfully swap out Aurora?

ps.

I wanna use the much cooler Leopard Server Aurora Image in it's place.

This is one of the first things i did because it is too much of a jar going from auroa to my background.

didn't work. it tells me i dont have the privileges, even though i'm admin and even though i tried to put read&write on all users. what was really strange is that i couldn't add my account name to the list.

and moving/ replacing didn't work.

any tips?

select the file and then drag it to the desktop, it'll copy it for backup purposes. Then select the file and delete it, it'll pop up saying you need to authenticate press the button and enter your admin username and password. Then copy the file in and again enter username and password.
