Short answer with difficulties.

A model window works by 'poping' up a window and as we know this is bad in the world of web programming with all the popup blockers around. If you can always have the message in-line on the page.

Are you displaying something or are you just looking for a confirmation?

If you must have a popup then look at  AjaxControlToolkit ModalPopup http://www.asp.net/AJAX/AjaxControlToolkit/Samples/ModalPopup/ModalPopup.aspx

There are a few extra things to think about with Ajax and SharePoint (It is only really only support from SP1)

Have a search on the web e.g. http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/02/20/asp-net-ajax-and-sharepoint.aspx for links on how to install it.
