That's the framebuffer logo; do you mean as a picture, or on boot?

If on boot, just add an appropriate vga= cheatcode for your resolution and color, and it'll show (they are listed in a table in f2 or f3, and also here: http://tinycorelinux.com/faq.html#bootcodes )

Well I wanted it for boot.  Thanks for the heads up, it's working.  However, now that I've seen it, I would like it for a jwm background.  Is there a link to the original image?

In what file do I have to add the cheatcode, if my installation is already finished on a CF-Card ?

@Andreas_2009: In your bootloaders "kernel arguments" line - if grub or syslinux/extlinux, they come on the line with "bzImage"

@Shagbag: It's a PNM in the kernel patch, here's it extracted to a png: (click for the full size image)

I'm sorry, but can you tell me the name and location of the exact file to edit ? I can't find it, sorry.

Something like:

grub: /mnt/sda1/boot/grub/menu.lst
syslinux: /mnt/sda1/boot/isolinux/syslinux.cfg
extlinux: /mnt/sda1/boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf

where you need to substitute "sda1" with your actual drive designation

Ah ! Alright.
I searched in all directories but the /mnt/hda1  :-\

Just for me:
until now, I have only "quiet" as kernel argument in the bootloader.
And during searching a couple of days ago, I found a file (can't remember) where only the word "quiet" was in there.
Any idea, what file that was?
Can I also put the additional arguments in there ?

Sure, just add them on the same line as "quiet".

For the file you found, perhaps it was isolinux.cfg from the TC .iso?
