How to define gdm login banner & disable user list in Fedora-16

In Fedora-15, one could use gconf-editor as user gdm to define banner_message_enable, banner_message_text, and disable_user_list in the /var/lib/gdm/.gconf/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/%gconf.xml file, and those definitions would be effective on the gdm-simple-greeter console login screen (new graphical.target replacement of runlevel 5 mode).

In Fedora-16, gconf-editor can be used to set up the same definitions in the same %gconf.xml file, but they have no effect on the console login screen.

How does one set up a console login banner message and disable the user list in Fedora-16? It appears that the gdm-simple-greeter is not running under Fedora-16, and that instead a process "gnome-shell --gdm-mode" might be handling the console login screen.
