How do we implement a Custom Windows Logon using GINA / Notification Packages

Require advice if it is possible to implement custom Windows Logon using

2. Winlogon Notification Packages /
3. Custom Security Package Structures /
4. Anything-you-know-better.
The dll that will be replaced will first verify users voice and then allow further access. Our voice verfication is a normal VC++ program which requires regular dependencies.

The main task we wish to achieve is load and process Voice User Verfication just after logon (early stage) and then allow drivers and explorer.exe to load. Can experts let me know how we can accomplish this ? (similar to the smart card stuff already built in) > I have heard it is possible to replace the whole NT logon. ???
