There are three files which makeup the startup and shutdown screens, they are:
- LOGO.SYS - The startup screen, usually located in your C:\ directory
- LOGOW.SYS - The 'Please wait...' screen, usually located in your c:\windows directory.
- LOGOS.SYS - The 'It's now safe to turn off your computer.' screen, usually located in your c:\windows directory.
These files are standard 256 color Windows bitmap files with dimensions of 320(w) x 400(h). You can use basically any image editing program to change them (as long as it supports BMP files).
This information was taken from the following web site:

To do it for windows xp, or at least the way I did it, you have to edit the kernel. You could use tools like reshacker to extract and change the bitmaps in executables and libraries. I don't know the file name and stuff from my head, I'm not on my windows xp box. Maybe google can clear up the rest of this.
