extending our Arch support

i have recently discovered one can change their BIOS boot logo (the energy star or manufacturer graphic during POST) whit one of ur choice. now to do this, u need to have an award flash BIOS. So to the point: I plan on making some Arch logos to use as an alternate to further show our support fur this great distrobution. Are any of u fellow Archers interested?? if so, i will put a good write up and the tools needed along whit the choices of graphics up fur the taking. and fur the record, i have NOT done mine yet. but will tonight so i can than more accurately tell that it is safe. depending on the response, i can seek out and assemble a customized BIOS file whit the requested logo so all ull need to do is flash it in if ur unsure or dont want to take it on.

Re: extending our Arch support

im sorry to keep everyone waiting yet again but i have still neglected to get down and dirty on the project. i know im lazy but what can i say?? i have been finding images to use as the logo and other things and still plan on making my own guide to follow along whit sorting out the utils needed. a friend just bought a digital camera so i can swap my logo and post a real graphic showing how sexy itll be.

Soon enough, I'll ask about where and how, but maybe you will surprise me with answers before I ask the questions, eh?
