Network messaging

The clients are pretty static, as they boot from a CD and do not
authenticate anywhere but locally.  User-specified MOTD would be the ideal
way to go, but since the clients aren't normal clients, it doesn't seem so
possible.  Reading a text file from the server using ssh at logon will
achieve pretty much the same results.

Cant' blame me for trying though. BTW can't you easily rig up something to 
keep the account MOTD's current with whatever the latest images are?
