Screensaver on Kindle 2??

I've read something about people being able to put screens or screensavers on the Kindle 1 to replace the "normal" images that are displayed whenever you put it to sleep.

Can I do this on the Kindle 2? I'd love to have some of my own images display when I put the unit to sleep.

Also, is there any information I've missed indicating whether or not Amazon is considering a firmware update that will allow organization of content into folders? THAT would be a HUGE feature as far as I'm concerned.

Thank you!

If you want your own screen saver images, you need to install a special hack to the firmware to do so. You'll also need to uninstall the hack whenever a new firmware is released by Amazon and reinstall it afterwards.
