SUMMARY: Change banner for incoming logins

I wanted to be able to change the default login message on our workstations

         Connected to nzls05.
         Escape character is '^]'.

         SunOS UNIX (nzls05)

To a notice pointing out our network is for authorised use etc only. Most of the
responses were to change gettytab. Unfortunately, this does not affect
incoming telnet/rlogin connections, which are 99% of our logins.

The other response was to get*
or which I am in the process
of doing. This will (hopefully) work under network and physical tty conditions.
