Fairly straightforward, I think. I'm running a SharePoint 2010 instance.

Drag a favicon.ico file to the Images directory of your MOSS site with SharePoint designer.
Add the following line to your Master Page at the bottom of the head section right before the
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/images/favicon.ico" />
Check-in, publish, and approve your Master Page so that anonymous folks can see the change.
Sean Earp's answer was extremely helpful, but the details were essentially off for my particular situation. Here are the steps I took to accomplish what I wanted:
- I put a copy of the favicon.ico I wanted to use in the /images/ folder by using SharePoint Designer.
- I then went into "Master Pages", right-clicked on "v4.master", hovered over "Open With", and selected "SharePoint Designer (Open as Text)".
- Then I had to find the following line within the head section:
<SharePoint:SPShortcutIcon runat="server" IconUrl="/_layouts/images/favicon.ico" __designer:Preview="<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/_layouts/images/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" />" __designer:Values="<P N='IconUrl' T='/_layouts/images/favicon.ico' /><P N='InDesign' T='False' /><P N='ID' T='ctl10' /><P N='Page' ID='1' /><P N='TemplateControl' ID='2' /><P N='AppRelativeTemplateSourceDirectory' R='-1' />"/>
- All I had to do at this point was remove the three instances of the string
/_layoutsas that would then point to the file I wanted to use.
I didn't need to insert a new
<link/> line. In fact when I tried to it wouldn't use the line I inserted even though it would still show up after viewing the page's source.
All that was left was to set v4.master as the Default master page.
