thanks for your reply!

i've thought of that option as well. however, i don't know a file that's
only there when someone is logged in, and to have other users create a
file upon login is too much to ask (we have about 500 user-accounts).

most users have their home directory mounted into /Volumes/Userdata/
though, so i could maybe use a file like /Volumes/Userdata/
pause_dnetc.file - i'll try that tomorrow. the remaining problem would be
the users who have their home directory on the same machine they're
logging in on (that's not many users though, so i could make a login/
logout script for 'em).

cheers, oliver
