I believe you're talking about a "popup" that is more of a modal window then a true popup. This would mean creating a div that is positioned above the page and floats over everything else.

Here's a quick example of how you could do this with jQuery and CSS.
The fixed positioning is solved thanks to an example by stu nicholls at CSS Play. This should leave the div fixed so that it doesnt scroll with the page even on IE 6. IT fades in when the page loads and it fades out when its clicked.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions if it doesn't make sense.

$(document).ready(function() {
        //Make the notice DIV display on page load
        //Register a click event on the DIV[id=notice] and make it fade out.
	$('#notice').click( function() {

#notice {display:block; top:200px; left:200px; height:110px; width:276px; position:fixed; border:2px solid black; padding:10px; z-index:1000; background-color:white; display:none;}
* html #notice {position:absolute;}
