Modifying "sysvinit" source code.

In most distributions, during boot, a message appears:
"Welcome to <Distribution>" With <Distribution> usually in a pretty color. I figure that this message is compiled into the sysvinit source code. Does anyone know where this message appears in the source code. I may have found it in "init.c" but I would like to know for sure before I recompile it.

All you have to do is edit the /etc/issue file. Read Customizing your Logon with /etc/issue.

You don't have to edit any source code.
