Create your own dialog with a static control to display your text.  In the OnInitDlg set a timer going.  In the OnTimer KillTimer to destroy timer and then OnCancel() to kill the dialog.
To prevent the user killing the dlg with the Enter/Esc keys you can override the OnOk and OnCancel as follows
CMessageDlg::OnOK() //OnCancel
{
}

In that case call the CDialog::OnCancel() in your timer.
