Well done!  Have to admit I never thought about customising splash and wall
paper to organisations' corporate identity.

Any chance when you feel comfortable with the whole process you could post
links to those tutorials / processes that gave you the most help?

Thanks for the responses! I have persisted, and seem to have made some
headway. Reconstructor is good for the simple task I need, and I am
making a live CD with boot screen, usplash, and background, all
customised, great.

I can offer more comments here and details at a later date. Some
questions reamain, ( I can follow up you useful leads, thanks) but I
basically now have a suitable ubuntu customised cd to fit my immediate
need. Something like this with an organization's logo all over it
should be good to gain the attention of the target org I have in mind.
Not sure how far I will get, but it will certainly start a process.
