First question: is this the right forum!

However, the main question is this:
We have Novell Client on our machines, which show the standard login box when switched on, waiting for someone to log in. Is it possible to have a program run when the machine boots up which displays information on the login screen? (Either on the Novell login window or outside it.) What the program shows will vary over time and should be refreshed every 5 minutes say, so just changing a bitmap won't work.
The program will need to access our intranet webserver to get some data; security isn't really an issue - it doesn't need to log in to the web server, a public page is all that is required.

I've spent a while searching, but haven't found any suitable answer yet.

Thanks in advance for any help.
