Smile Login Warning Banner or Greeter /etc/gdm/custom.conf


Very new to Linux.

When I edit the /etc/gdm/custom.conf and point to the text file that displays my login banner the login banner is displayed however, much of the text stretches beyond the screen. Is there a setting I must specify so the text is more centerd to the screen before users login?
Using RHEL 5 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux).

A million thanks
John

Yep that worked! Simply had to go to a second line and continue typing.
