Hi

I am working in a simplified sign on project. This project had to change the
AD password policy in order to comply with the updated corporate standard. A
question has been raised if it is possible to modify the change password
dialog box in Windows XP / 2000 and add a text description of the new
password policy in the interface.

Hei Magnus,

You will need to write your own gina dll (that replaces MSGina.dll)
to be able to do that:

Platform SDK: Authentication
Winlogon and GINA

(ref. NWGina.dll if you have used the Novell Netware client, it has
a modified logon and change password interface)
