Change the login console of a linux box to create an appliance


I know there are ways to change the login of a linux box (runlevel 3) so that you don't see the regular login prompt but that you get a list with options. You see this with appliances.

My goal is to create a login like some of those appliances have. Instead of just getting a login prompt you can select several options like login, change network configuration, change password, stuff like that.

How can I do this? Is there an Open Source tool to configure this?

Best regards,

You need to search for an alternative getty program. This program is the one that shows the "login:" prompt.
