How do I limit the list of possible users on the X login screen in SuSE 8.2?

I am running SuSE 8.2 with several onsite users, as well as offsite users. Is there a method to restrict the list of possible users on the X login screen? Currently, all accounts for the Linux box display in the GUI login window.

One can limit who can log in to the system through the login permissions in the /etc/ directory.
