I use a multi-boot program called BootMagic that has a very lame 
icon for Linux. I wish to replace the current icon with a picture
of Tux (the penguin) or some other familiar Linux icon. The icon
must conform to the Windows icon format: 32x32 pixels @ 16 colors
in the *.ico format.

I've roamed around the various archives and searched google and
deja.com/usenet. I've found plenty of Tux icons but none in the
right format. I can't figure out if/how to use GIMP to produce
a correct icon file from a graphic that is a different native

Anybody know where such an icon exists? 
If not, can anybody walk me thru the steps to create an acceptable
graphic from an existing graphic using GIMP?
