    I don't know about you, but Snow Leopard's aurora is so much cooler. I used a program called "Desktop 2 Login" to change the default wallpaper for the login screen to a different wallpaper.

    Using this same program I changed it back to L's Aurora. (Still in 10.5). When I upgraded to snow leopard, the login wallpaper did not change. It is still stuck on L's aurora. I have used about every method besides Terminal, and it won't change. Any Ideas?

    The location of the default background is:

    Macintosh HD/System/Library/CoreServices and is called "DefaultDesktop.jpg"

    Yeah, you don't need an app to do it.

    Just find whatever image you want (by the way, Apple's backgrounds are in Macintosh HD/Library/Desktop Pictures) and rename it to that, "DefaultDesktop.jpg" and drag it into the place Kilamite said.
