Covenant ain't Forerunner; I bet they never done even seen one!
On the "Symbols" on the walls of Halo:
Many people have been using these symbols as proof linking Forerunner to Covenant.
I'm not the first to suggest this, but I feel that the symbols are clearly not part of Halo and were drawn by the Covenant, either religiously or as warnings or signs.
Another explanation may be that the Covenant adopted the Forerunner symbols, after all they do worship them (or at least the structures they built). e.g.: If I wear a cross around my neck, it doesn't mean that I am Jesus.
He does bring up a valid point, however; it's entirely possible that the Covenant have never even met the Forerunner, but have found these massive ring constructs scattered about the galaxy. Maybe it's just me, but that would certainly inspire at least some sort of reverence for the Forerunner.
