This always worked for me.

To change the splash screen, put the downloaded image in an
unobtrusive location (since it will need to remain there as long as
you want it to be the splash screen). A logical location would be
~/.gnome/splash.png (or .jpeg if the image is a JPEG). Then, edit the
GConf key /apps/gnome-session/options/splash_screen using the
Configuration Editor (Panel menu->System Tools->Configuration Editor).

I've never changed the background color, so you're on your won there.

Best of luck!
