I want to change the boot screen and icons in windows 2000. I would like to change it where windows is installed the new things are installed also. The problem is I have never done it before and really dont know to do it.
Can someone give me a step by step tutorial, please?

I saw that before. This only works after windows is installed. But thanks for looking.
I wanted it to install while windows is installing.

Im not quite sure about exactly what you want but i think you mean you want to change it from installation. In which case, you would:

1. Copy the contents of the CD to somewhere you can edit the files, or edit the ISO using a utility like UltraISO and extract the NTOSKRNL.EX_ file in the i386 folder. Then use the expand command in the command line to extract it into NTOSKRNL.EXE. This is the file described in the tutorial above that you would edit.
You use the expand command like:
Code:
expand x:\NTOSKRNL.EX_ x:\NTOSKRNL.EXE


2. To change icons, most are contained within shell32.dll, which is contained within SHELL32.DL_ in the i386 directory of the CD. Again use the expand command, and edit the icons using ResHacker and an icon editing tool.

3. Then use the makecab command at the command line to convert your files back into compressed cab files.
This is done like this:
Code:
makecab x:\NTOSKRNL.EXE x:\NTOSKRNL.EX_

If it asks, overwrite the existing file.

4. Place these files back with the others on a new CD or insert the back into the ISO using UltraISO and save.[/code]

Are you sure that it's makecab? I believe that .??_ files are expanded with EXPAND.exe (like you said) and compressed with COMPRESS.exe. If you don't have those, there's a compatible free version, supposedly, at http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/mscompress.htm. Can't vouch for that, as I haven't tried it.

After compressing the files (I believe it's indeed the makecab utility)), don't forget to apply the modifype tool (available for download) on the file, otherwise, Windows setup may complain about the file and refuse to copy it.

I've never had to do this before, but then again i was doing Longhorn 3718 Ultimate (my own project, not public), so im not sure about all windows.

Yeah its modifype. How do you do it? Is there an easier way instead of command line?

Before (I was wrong on that one, sorry) compressing with makecab, use it like this (replace filename, of course):
Code:
modifype ntoskrnl.exe -c

Don't know what you mean with an easier way, this is easy, isn't it?

You need to download modifype first and put it into your Windows\system32 directory so it's in the path.

Did you read the post I made at Vipertech regarding tools I use during
the modding of an OS...
I posted a download link to an app that does exactly what modifype does,
only it does it from the right click menu entry, no command line in a
dos box needed...

EDIT::
Nevermind, I re-posted them HERE for you

I suggest you try finding unattented install tutorials. These will help you and solve any questions you might have.
