One slightly different approach you can try depending on exactly what you want
to say to the user is actually to customise the login banner. You can change
it to an image of any sort you want and you can also type your own text for
the greeting. If you want users to agree to not doing anything silly on the
computer, you could change the login banner to an image on which you've used
an application like the gimp to write something like:
'Clicking 'login' and logging into our computer systems signifies your
agreement to these terms: X, Y, and Z'
This can be achieved through Kcontrol -> System Administration -> Login
Manager. You'll need to click the 'Administrator mode' button to gain root
Otherwise, you can use a kdialog message box with an 'ok' button or a passive
popup and place the script in $KDEDIR/share/autostart.
