I found a way to change the startup, shutdown and safe to turn off logos in Windows 9x. Here's how you do it using just Paint.

To edit the startup logo,
1. In Paint, create a nice picture that is 640x480.
2. In Image>Stretch/Skew change the horizontal value to 50 and the vertical value to 80 and click OK.
3. Save it as a 256-color bitmap as "\logo.sys".
4. Right-click (or left-click for left handers) on MSDOS.SYS (only visible if you have Show All Files and Folders turned on in the folder options) and choose Properties.
5. Untick hidden and read-only
6. Open it in Notepad
7. Under [Options] write logo=1 and save it.
8. Restart and watch your cool new logo.

To edit the shutting down logo,
1. In Paint, create a nice picture that is 640x480.
2. In Image>Stretch/Skew change the horizontal value to 50 and the vertical value to 80 and click OK.
3. Save it as a 256-color bitmap as "\WINDOWS\logow.sys".

To edit the "it is now safe to turn off computer" logo,
1. In Paint, create a nice picture that is 640x400.
2. In Image>Stretch/Skew change the horizontal value to 50 and the vertical value to 80 and click OK.
3. Save it as a 256-color bitmap as "\WINDOWS\logos.sys".

Have fun editing! :D

Edit: Fixed some instructions to make it easier
