    Yes, there is. It is called "banner"!
    I tried it and it worked, although the banner was very big to be useful. Try man banner for parameters, etc.

    I'm going to make a huge assumption here and guess that your on fedora. if your not, then ignore this (although it will also work on RHEL 5, CENTOS 5, or any other system with YUM installed.

    at the command line, type

    $ yum search banner

    that should give you a listing of all packages that contain the word banner in the description or name. I dont recall what package it's in, so you'll have to experiment with it a bit.

    to install a package, type

    su - root
    password: <--- enter root password

    yum install package_name_here <--- to install a package
    yum remove package_name_here <---- to remove package.


    if your search turns up a file like
    banner.i386
    banner.x86_64
    banner.noarch

    or anything like that, install that first, but if i'm not mistaken (which i can't verify because my linux box's cpu fan died ) then it came in a package that was a collection of text tools.
    New to the internet, technical forums, or the hacker / open source community??
