That's the grub 'message' file. Have a look at /boot/message
or /etc/bootsplash/themes/SuSE/bootloader/message, it is a cpio archive. If
you unpack it you should be able to see how to change it

That's the kdm screen. Change UseTheme to False
in /etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc and then go to KDE's control centre
and set the background image there
