Let's update the syslinux theme for live media with the newer & cleaner design.
For Live media, this will involve updating imagecreate/live.py to generate the new theme values
http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=livecd;a=blob;f=imgcreate/live.py;h=6ad9c5b79626611df49a2b1769dff0f3092c5ae9;hb=HEAD around line 454) ... eventually it would be nice for this to have a templating system
I'll assign the bug to myself initially so I can create the template for you,
then I'll reassign to the default component owner.

screenshot of new syslinux config
The syslinux screen that shows up on new live media doesn't quite match the screenshots from this bug. Is that intentional?
I like the look of it, but the background that shows up makes it difficult to edit boot options with the white text on the white fedora logo.
I attached a screenshot of what I'm seeing with the F16 graphics test day i686 live image 
That will be fixed when the splash image is updated in fedora-logos.
Tim, I think spot updated the splash in the fedora-logos package yesterday, so hopefully that'll be readable soon.
livecd-tools-16.6-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
note that we should use 16.6 for the Beta, as 16.5 results in an incorrect background being used, AIUI.
so, RC1 was a bit of a swing-and-a-miss: the bootloader background is plain black on all lives and the DVD.
fedora-logos-16.0.2-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
