    I want to use some of the Leopard backgrounds (from Apple) on my bootcamp XP desktop. How can I access the image files?

    If you're talking about the "default" Leopard background, then it is now placed here:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/DefaultDesktop.jpg

    Change that JPEG file and you change the default background.

    what about the other screens like the gray at boot up and then the blue before the desktop appears - can they be changed ? - thanks for you help
