qucik startup question


I am running debian server on my linux box, when the system boots or when i logout I would like to have a qucik script to clear the screen so that all that info is not displayed. Im still learning more about linux and am new to scripting in linux so if anyone could help me it would be appreciated. Thanks

To clear your session when you logout, put the command "clear" in a users .bash_profile e.g.
Code:
$echo "clear" >> ~/.bash_profile
To clear login messages, try putting the command "clear" in your /etc/init.d/rc.local. If the file does not exist on your Debian system, use this guide to create it.
