Customizing boot-up screen?

After installing FW 2.0 in my Gen3, I've noticed a couple of files in it. The first is "autorun.inf", which has this:

Code:
[autorun]
icon=system\device.ico
UseAutoPlay=0

[Content]
MusicFiles=0
PictureFiles=0
VideoFiles=0

[IgnoreContentPaths]
eBooks
Music
Pictures
system
It looks pretty straightforward, but the "icon" line caught my attention, so I had a look at the "system/device.ico" file. At first sight, it's just binary data, but there's at least a PNG file embedded (between the strings "PNG" and "IEND", approx.), which I've attached here.

So, I wonder if this image can be changed (anyone dares trying it?), and what's the info in the rest of the file.

That file has nothing to do with bootup, it's for automagically running things when the Cybook is connected to a Windows PC.
The "system/device.ico" should be a normal icon file and thus I'm guessing it should be editable/replacable like any icon file. (Note: I'm guessing. Try at your own risk.)
As for the other sections, see wikipedia.

I'm thinking they added that file to get computers running Windows to show a nice Cybook icon when the device is connected. As far as I understand it, the "Content" and "IgnoreContentPaths" sections basically tells windows to ignore anything on the Cybook, and the "autorun" section just sets the icon to display.

the ICO files are Windows Icon files, and if you look closely, there are too icons for Mac OS X.

Well, I wish we could change that bootup image too. Tired to have Clinton face each time.

The Leonard de Vinci Man in the circle that come with the cybook would be a nice change...(it's already in and I like it, any other you like is fine for you...).
And it would be nice to change it from time to time anyway. But of course, it's not a "must have" like the folders were.
