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 /

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. ???
