login banner? elaborate... the text based banner is in /etc/issue, as for the graphical login... there is a utility hiding somewhere that can do that.

Graphical Login Banner

Use "gdmsetup" to create and/or modify a login banner in the GUI.

For Fedora Core check out for /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net

Thanks

Linux Logon Banner Options

/etc/issue.net, although helpful, is only useful for Telnet sessions. Given the security implications associated with Telnet, most people use SSH for remote connections. You can configure a banner that displays immediately after an SSH login by modifying sshd_config (on RH systems, it's at /etc/ssh/sshd_config). I have not been able to find a way to display a banner prior to login in an SSH session. You may also wish to configure a graphical logon banner for use with Gnome which can be done by running gdmsetup and making changes under the Standard or Graphical greeter tabs. If you're using KDE, you can either modify logon behavior with the graphical tool under Control Center >> System Administration >> Login Manager or by manually modifying the kdmrc text file. Use "find / -name kdmrc" to locate it on your system, but it's probably in a location similar to "/etc/kde/kdm".

also look at the file /etc/banner

The file /etc/banner will contain a login banner, as well.

You can edit it to zero length if it is causing problems for things like Oracle 10g RAC installation.

um.. this thread was 4 years old, i'm sure the OP has long since moved on, please check the post dates before replying to a thread, especially since the quick reply should have been disabled for a post this old,resurrecting threads this old is really bad form and is highly frowned upon unless there is a pressing need to do so which your reply doesn't qualify as such.
