    Default Change startup text?

    After searching Google for awhile, and being unable to find a solution, I thought I would ask here. in BackTrack3, how it says "Loading the desktop, Inviting Good Carma to the CPU, May the sauce be with you" as it loads, is there a file in which that is contained and if so, where is it?

    I would like to change the messages to something else. Like "Get ready", "Get set...", 'GO!" or something other than the default.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance...

    Yep it sure is.
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    I think it's in the grub.conf, but I could be wrong.

    Default Just the filename?

    Okay, could someone please just tell me which FILE this information is stored in? I'll take it from there as far as editing it. I've been using the find command piped with grep looking through all files for the text "May the sauce be with you" and it's STILL searching. going on 24 hours now.

    Just the filename would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Don't remember for sure but I think it's in

    Home/User/.fingerprint or something, just show all hidden files. maybe KDE you'll find it, its somewhere in there
