i've found out how to change the boot image...
here is the used method to change the image, and the link to the same:

1-http://bestfreewallpapers.net/mediagallery/media.php?f=0&sort=0&s=20120308163333326
2-download the image and save it (this is the one i've used)
3-open it with mtpaint:
a-go to "image" and choose "scale canvas"
a1-on new you choose 640 and you can put a value lower or equal to 480 (recommended: 388)
a2-you might need to unselect the option "fiz aspect ratio"
b-go to "image" and click on "convert to indexed"
b1-on "indexed color to use", you put 16
b2-on "palette", choose "pnn quantitize"
b3-on "dither", choose "dithered"
b4-click on the button "settings"
b5-on "colour space", choose "rgb"
c-go to "file" and choose "save as..."
c1-on "file format", choose "lss16"
c2-(this is not a must) name your file of "logo.16.lss" (to distinguish which file is the new image)
4-open the file "boot.msg" using geany (or any equivalent file editor that supports special chars):
a-in the first line, change "logo.16" to the name of the image (ex: "logo.16.lss")
b-you can change the text color by writing after char "SI" the number of the color. the number of the color can be taken from the image. the color value MUST BE IN HEX (ex:SI0a). the color code will match the color indexed in the image!!!

this was tested using mtpaint 3.31, geany 0.18 and done in puppy linux 4.3.1
