You will probably find that that is already set up. You will probably want to use the samba program. http://www.samba.org/

You would need to change your window manager (enlightenment is probably best for this) and get or write a theme that does this. Of course the insides of the program will be the same shape so you will end up with an insaly huge border.

Most log in screens are themeable to some extent, how you go about it would depend on which log in program you use.

You could run them through a shell script. Something like this might work:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
mplayer /path/to/file.avi
exec $*

ummm.. if your using the free netzero, and not paying for it, it isn't going to work most likely as it needs the software to connect to display the ads... now if your paying for the service, just setup a dial out program like kppp or gnomes internet dialer you can find in the program menu which makes things easier....
