I just tested this out in Panther, works like a charm.

I can't seem to get this to work on Panther but was able to using Jaguar. Now I can't remember how I did it back in the day... was it:

sudo pico /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist 
and then editing the contents to:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple$
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
        <key>noPasswordKey</key>
        <false/>
        LoginwindowText
        This computer was brought to you by the letter A and the number 1
</dict>
</plist>
hmm no, all it does is 10.3 resets the file to the original when I switch to the login panel with FUS. Even adding it in using and tags doesn't seem to work either... What am I doing wrong?
