Is there any simple way to send messages to all users who are connected to my Samba server.

I've just a basic fileserver setup  (in a workgroup not Domain) all clients are using Win2k and mapping to shares.  I'd like to be able to send them a "popup" message from the Linux console (or my PC, or somewhere !) to let them know when I'm intending to reboot the server !
