On 9.1 I used to put everything into the above mentioned folder, into
the corresponding subfolders; BUT as root I used to link always the
theme as "Default" I would like to have for all of my users.
(Yeah, of course after a backup of the original 'Default' folder,
see later...) At present the situation is:

khazad-dum:/etc # ls -l /opt/kde3/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/
total 2
drwxr-xr-x 55 root root 1648 May 1 22:51 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 128 May 1 23:04 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 256 Nov 4 2004 Agent_Splash
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 256 Sep 19 2004 Bad_Bill
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 256 Dec 11 19:18 Blue_Planet
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 256 Dec 11 19:18 Debian_Storm
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Apr 2 00:49 Default -> Looney/
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 280 Apr 1 23:13 Default.bak

In conclusion don't edit anything if you don't know, what you are
doing. Later it's still easier to remove a symlink than re-animate
your system-wide 'ksplashrc'...

Ps. In case you decide to give a try for the above "trick, take care
of KDE updates; they should overwrite then the folder, where the
Default symlink is pointing to...
