Not sure were to look, but I was hoping to get in the right direction on a few things here.
Firstly, I would like to continue using my RH8 box, however, I would like to wipe out all "Red Hat" references possible displayed during the boot process. Mainly the part on the screen from grub or lilo when selecting a kernal to run - that screen has a huge graphic of Red Hat.
Also, once the machine begins to post - Right before it starts kicking off servies [PASSED] or [FAILED] replies down the right side of the screen. Just before this starts, there is a clear message in red "Red Hat Linux" pops up.
After the boot, the actual command prompt given to the user actually says "Red Hat Linux 8.0" as well as the kernel number, then a boot prompt. I want all this RedHat stuff to go away and just give me a boot prompt of my choosing.
Basically, I'm showing a product off to some customers who are very excited that I have built this product. In reality, I use a standard RH8 install to fire up apache, ssh, and mySql. I then hit my application directly via apache with a web browser from antoher computer on the networik. Everyone says "oh, wow, you wrote that whole thing. Great for you."
... inevitably some geek will see "Red Hat" flashing up during a reboot at a demo and point out that I "just used red hat to write my application" which is not true, but it's counter productive to the image I'm trying to maintain with this.
So how can I make all these red hat references go away? I know what OS I'm using, and I'd rather it just say nothing about the OS during the boot up or while awaiting a login at the command prompt.
Help? Surely someone has done this before. I've dug all over the box looking for special little hidden files that may contain these values, but haven't found anything just yet.
