WinXP desktops, where?

this'll seem kinda odd request, but there qre some desktops that come with WinXP that I find are really nice. For example the "red desert moon" one... fab picture.



I did an extensive search but the pictures dont appear in any WIN or SYS directory or anything. I even did a generic .jpg and .bmp search and they don't appear.



Any help?

    ok.. thanks a lot for the tip.



    Now, pray tell, WHY THE HELL DID THE SEARCH not find these files??? They are ordinary BMP and JPG files.



    My first 2 days with XP full time have been pretty crappy so far. Slow, buggy, and the search doesnt even work.



    At least its less hideous to look at and use. Good thing I have a Mac next to the pc too.

    these are the ones I liked... the other ones I threw away. Too bad the RED MOON DESERT one degrades really badly at more than 1024x768. On the Cinema Display is almost unviewable.

    OSX or XP?



    XP is on a laptop. P3 800MHz 256MB ram and ATI graphics chipset.

    if someone can tell me why I get these errors while uploading files to my iDisk, I sure can.



    It seemes to happen with .sit files.



    I've tried uploading to all folders.

    Is there a way you can drop the images(not as zip) on my iDisk? How big are they?

    ok, I downloaded the iDisk utility and through one thing and another I managed to upload the damn things finally.



    Either access my public folder zo66 or just click <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/zo66/.Public/XP.sit"; target="_blank">here</a>
