warning to make them think before they access that OS.  XP is not really
an issue as there is a front end password that the likely user is

Yes easy just modify the registry.

Windows 95 and Windows 98
To enable a warning message, modify the following registry key:

The string values will appear on the logon banner.

"LegalNoticeCaption"="Important Notice:"
"LegalNoticeText"="No Unauthorized access allowed"

In NT and later:

SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Add or modify the following values:
       Name Data Type Value
                 LegalNoticeCaption REG_SZ Dialog Caption
                 LegalNoticeText REG_SZ Dialog Message

Obviously in the you can place whatever text you want in your banner.
