Static "System Banner" Window

I am developing a system of VMWare servers hosted on Linux (RHEL WS 4 so far) Each Host machine will be on the same KVM Switch. Is there any way to place a small banner window at the top of the Linux desktop with the server's hostname to eliminate confusion? And no matter what window opens, the small window remains there?

This thing will confuse the end users enough with all the virtual machines running. I am somewhat open to changing OS's, but I'd like to keep the GUI packages to a minimum since the host is really only a shell to hold the rest of the virtual machines. That said, what makes it work? I may just have to live with it....


banner, machine, virtual, vmware
