Looking for suggestion or an example on the best way to handle a login dialog and splash screen.

Can you expand on what it is you are trying to do? I have just implemented something similar where an initial screen is displayed awaiting a user to login. It simply handles the authentication process within a view model and then activates a particular screen depending on the result?

I have a bootstrapper that is inheriting from "Bootstrapper<IShell>" and I am displaying the login by overriding "DisplayRootView()".  This is fine as it is modal and nothing can be done before login.  Is this how others accomplish this, or is there a more prefered way?  The splash screen on the other hand should happen before the DisplayRootView, so the same method will not work.  What are some methods that others have used?
