Edit /etc/motd ?
If you've got an /etc/issue file (or whatever the if property in
gettytab(5) is set to), that will be displayed before the login
prompt, and it gets the same sort of % expansion as done for the im
(initial banner message) or lm (login prompt) properties. See also
/etc/login.conf where the 'welcome' property can be changes to point
to a different file than /etc/motd
