NW4.1 New Login Trigger

I am running a Novell NetWare 4.1 network in an educational
environment.  In such an environment, we have many new users
all the time.

My question is this:  how can I have an electronic network
"usage agreement" pop up for the new user to digitally "sign" (i.e. say YES or NO)?  I was thinking of running a batch file to display a text document that they could respond to.

The problem is, I do not know how to trigger the batch file
to execute *only* upon first time logging in...  Is there
a variable for this that I could use in a login script?

This must take place in DOS since not all our users run
Windows.

Thanks,

Barbara Gale

you could creat a program yourself which will insert a key in the bindery (one per user)
otherwise you would have to make a self-changing batch file..

You could setup the batch file so that the first time it is run, it shows the agreement and then creates an empty file in the user's home dir.

On subsequent executions it could test for the existence of the file and skip the agreement etc if the file exists.

This of course falls down if the user keeps deleting this file that they don't know about from their home directory.
