You must edit the html code found in the overall_header.tpl file.

Assuming you have FTP acces (access to the files):

Open root/templates/your template/overall_header.tpl
<td><a href="{U_INDEX}"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif" border="0" alt="{L_INDEX}" vspace="1" /></a></td>
<td align="center" width="100%" valign="middle"><span class="maintitle">{SITENAME}</span><br /><span class="gen">{SITE_DESCRIPTION}<br />&nbsp; </span>
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0">

- To change the extension, filename, or path of the logo, edit the text in green
- To change where the logo hyperlink goes, edit the text in red. Replace with You may also wish to change the alternative text (orange) to reflect the new location. (ex. 'Portal', 'Home', etc.)
- To change the logo, just overwrite the {root}/templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif file with your own

If you don't have FTP access, you cannot change the logo.
