Hah, I and a friend did a very similar thing with our school's NetWare. We managed to get ours to silently log the user in after collecting the credentials so it was mostly invisible. We created it to get the password from a particular guy, but in true dragnet style we installed it on as many machines as we could.

I have no idea how network drives were managed with NetWare, but some students always managed to find world writable dirs (that shouldn't be). Then it was a matter of finding some obscure subdirectory, create a new one (typically containing alt+255 characters) and stick games there. Fun times.

We did get his password (and many others), but never actually did anything with it.
