All:

Is there a way to customize the "Welcome to Windows" box that comes up
FIRST, telling the user to press <ctrl-alt-del> to begin? This would be a XP
pro SP2 workstation in a 2003 domain environment. I have a custome JPG that I
would like to display instead of the default "Welcome to Windows" box.

I've seen this done with a 2000/XP Pro SP2 workstations w/ a Novell client
using a Novell server without a Windows Domain.

Hi,

I use this proggy, very easy and it works. I have only tested it on WinXP
Pro with SP1 but it should work.

Great idea. I tried it and it only works if the PC is removed from the
Domain. Once the system is on (a member) of a Domain it's useless. Thus will
not work in my environment. thanks for the feedback.

I have yet to find a way to skin that part of the GUI... Hopefully some
program will be developed that will allow you to do that.

Perfect fro my situation. You just got to know how to program Flash.
