Hey guys,

I need to have a Win98 system boot, and then immediately start a program - I can't have the desktop or anything visible in between the startup image (ostensibly the win98 image with the scrolling bar at the bottom, but I've replaced that with my own logo). Anyway, after my logo shows up it then loads the desktop complete with icons and whatnot, but I need it to go from that startup screen directly to an application (don't ever want to see a desktop/icons/taskbar/etc). Can I replace explorer.exe as my shell with my executable program, or will that not work? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
