These two look great. Although, wouldn't it be better to call it
kde-splash (since, unlike the gnome one, it is enabled by default)? I am
unsure which would be better though, perhaps I'm slightly more inclined
towards the one with the 'fedora' word, rather than the logo. But come
to think of it, would it be desirable/worth a try to promote the four
foundations there - i.e. putting there the four F's logo? I think it
might fit well within the design.

And about the banners - they seem over too simple to me, there're lots
of "deaf" space there (just simple gradient and nothing more taking up a
lot of space). Starting with the second one and add some more details
(not sure though, what would fit there) to the currently plain blue
background might help. Also, what are these banners for? IIRC in
anaconda these are "shorter" and thus the deaf spots would be reduced to
practically nil. 

Overal I think the way you've chosen is a good one :)
