I need to display a security banner in my logon script under windows nt 4.0.  Under netware I have always done a display or fdisplay with a pause to display some text.  How can I do this under Windows NT?  I have logged into some nt domains and a gui sorta logon security banner comes up and the user is forced to click to continue.  Any idea how to do this?  Any help with displaying a logon banner would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Under the HKEY/Users/default/control panel/desktop key in the registry, change the value of Wallpaper to the full pathname of the custom bitmap that you want to display.  Log off to see the new bitmap.
