Hi Kenny,

I don't know if the wallpaper packages from RHEL 6 will carry over to
CentOS 6 or not, however if they don't you could always copy them
from /usr/share/backgrounds on a RHEL 6 install. I suspect the default
ones outside of the separate folders (i.e. nature, cosmos, etc.) may be
copyrighted images but I just looked at the ones from the beta and
don't see a specific copyright mark so it's hard to say. I think the
ones in the folders are pretty standard gnome wallpaper images. 

If you're just going to use it as a personal desktop wallpaper on
CentOS I would think that'd be o.k.; but IANAL. I suspect someone more
familiar with what will be included in CentOS 6 will be able to say for
