Logon Banner Display For New User

We are going to create a Logon Banner using GPO on a Windows 2000 Active Directory Environment.
What I want to find out is what happens when a new user joins the company and s/he is logining in for the first time? Will he see the logon banner? If that is not possible any ideas to achieve this?

    If you're talking about the setting found in Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options, then this will be always displayed, whether it's the first logon or the 1.234th.
    The banner is display when the user hits Ctrl-Alt-Del, so before credentials can be entered.

    This is awesome exactly what we want to achieve.

    So it updates the local policy on the users laptop/pc?
