Edit /etc/profile with vi
Code:
# Since we dont know what you want to skip, here are what could possibly display 
# on output at login:
# midding /etc/issue, many people modify to put hostname with banner...
# extract of /etc/profile
   # This is to meet legal requirements...

        cat /etc/copyright

   # Message of the day

        if [ -r /etc/motd ]
        then
                cat /etc/motd
        fi

   # Notify if there is mail

        if [ -f /usr/bin/mail ]
        then
                if mail -e
                then    echo "You have mail."
                fi
        fi

   # Notify if there is news

        if [ -f /usr/bin/news ]
        then news -n
        fi

# -etc ....
