How to make startup message

I am using Ubuntu as my os.I have read that we can change the startup message.So i go to etc directory as root, and found file called "motd" and try to open it.But it says
"The Link "motd" is Broken. Move it to Trash?"
This link cannot be used, because its target "/var/run/motd" doesn't exist.
So how can i make startup message.why i couldnt open that file
