I've never done it but I guess the best way is to define a custom
theme: copy the folder /usr/share/lxdm/themes/Industrial to
/usr/share/lxdm/themes/Microlinux, set is as the default theme in
/etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf (where you can specify a different background
image) and then edit /usr/share/lxdm/themes/Microlinux/gtkrc and
/usr/share/lxdm/themes/Microlinux/greeter.ui as you prefer.

I suppose (but I haven't tried that too) that cutting away the 40
lines of the <child> section with id="sessions_box" from greeter.ui
should hide it.
