Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone knew how to set up a motd type message to the 
outside of the login prompt. By this I mean when someone firts encounters 
my machine i would like to display that 
"Welcome blah, blah, blah....
Login as guest
Password is guest"

I tried to set this up by putting a file in /etc called issue and then I 
sym linked it with issue.net (also in /etc), to no avail. Does some one 
have the answer?
ThanX for your time!
