I am running a Windows 2000 Active Directory environment with Windows XP as
the desktop.

My management want a very long message presented in the logon banner text -
so much that it actually doesn't fit in the window on the clients.
The window does not generate any scroll bars - but the users can read the
additional information if they click in the text area and use the down arrow
to scroll the text.
I have some doubt that my users are going to do this!!

Is there a way to increase the size of the windows and text area that is
used to display the message?

TIA

I am unaware of any way to change a window size via gpo.
