Unfortunately, there's not much that can be done without rewriting a lot of code. As Dibya pointed out, it was a leaked beta and even though it's based on Windows 2000, there's still enough differences where even if you installed KernelEx, it would most likely either crash the OS completely or turn it into Windows 2000. KernelEx I believe even replaces ntoskrnl.exe which not only contains the boot splash but a lot of other startup code as well. I totally agree though, it would be cool to do something with it but I don't think there's enough interest in it to actually start patching it to become usable.
