He is asking if you are in an Active Directory domain environment. I don't think your log on message will work unless your PC's are in a domain environment using server log on scripts so you may be wasting your time with the policy settings. A simple way to do this is that you could create a text message in notepad and add it to each users startup folder, I'm sure there are numerous other ways as well but there you go.

!SOLVED!
Apparantly you have to also enter something in the TITLE too, which is the entry right under or above "logon: Message text for users attempting to log on"
