    add the /noguiboot switch to your boot.ini file. That's located under your C:\drive or root directory. Your last lin ewould look something like this:

    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /noguiboot

    Or you could also do it by running msconfig and under your boot.ini tab check the /noguiboot box

    An ever cooler tweak is adding a wallpaper instead of the default blue. Just map to the .bmp or image file under:

    HKEY_Users\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper
