I am using the gmome-screensaver.  Although this question was asked a
bit 'tongue in cheek', I would like to slow the bounce down a little.  I
love it as a nonsense screensaver.

In FC5 for sure, and also FC6 (I think) there was a button in the gnome
screensaver dialogue gui that brought up an additional dialogue that you
could use to configure the bouncing cow for the number of cows (I used
to have two) and the speed.

rpm doesn't give me the location but I had already found it with
'locate'.  Will see if I can edit it.
