You're thinking of a local/fat application?  Something that is kicked
off by the completion of firstboot?

What about putting that into the welcome page for the browser, and
auto-starting Firefox?  Whatever that page looks or acts like, it could
have a nicely visible "New Users Start Here" widget that kicks off what
you are describing.

It sounds like a confluence of tool and content/media creation, so it is
like an interactive tour.
