i am aiming to have a window displaying the terms and conditions before users log on to the workstations.
i am running a small business 2003 premium edition server, with about 50 workstations running windows xp professional sp2.

if i run regedit on a xp workstation or the server and drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Currentversion\Winlogon and edit the keys
"legal notice caption" and "legal notice text", it gives me the desired effect but only on the local pc.  Is there a way of pushing this out through group policy to all the workstations?
