What about /etc/issue?

It will print before the login prompt.  The difficulty with putting it
between the login prompt and the password prompt is that getty passes
the username (from the login prompt) to the login program that then
asks for the password.  So if that is what you want, you'd have to look
at getting the login program to do it.  There may be a replacement login
program, such as francine, that would allow this.


/etc/issue is exactly what I wanted.  Thank you.
