This is good for Redhat. A a per-screen script /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0 (yes xdm, even if using kdm) that configure the
appearance of the login screen,
and you can pretty much stick what you
want in there - xbanner being the obvious candidate. You'll have to tweak
the resources to remove buttons and such.

For a graphical *login* message, you can also similarly tweak the global Xsession.

As far as having a global *logout* graphical message - that's a real pisser.
