I've been lookin around for a few good XP boot screens (not logon screens), but there just aren't as many good ones as there used to be. I was wondering if anyone knew a good place to go to get some really nice ones.

boot screen size ?

Is it a XP limitation or is it possible to oversized boot screen to more than 640x480 ?

Just out of curiosity, how do you load up the new boot screens once you download them, is there a program or something?

I'm probably gonna be using a program called Resource Hacker to replace my boot screen. I used to have a really interesting anime bootscreen, but I can't find it anymore. I'm contemplating on making my own, but first I have to find an image that I like.

If you are trying to make your own bootscreen remember that is has to be 16 colors (4 bit) and the color palette is hardcoded into ntoskrnl.exe. Get some information about it here: http://www.virtualplastic.org/html/logo_scr.html#4 (scroll down to the 'XP-bootscreen' chapter).
And most important if you mess around with bootscreens, make sure you know how to use the recovery console.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
