Hi Jim:

That was perfect!   gdialong --yesno "my banner" as the first line in 
Xsession works like a charm.

Now, onto PAM - /etc/pam.d/blah.conf claims in the header comments that 
the file is autogenerated and any edits will be lost.   So what is the 
proper way to make changes that WILL stick?

I'm new to the PAM world.

Thanks again.
