On Solaris, if you create a banner file /etc/issue it will do what I 
think you want. However, it comes in on stderr from your ssh client, so 
you need to do complicated things to get clean output from stderr of 
remote commands.

Does anyone know if this is different from the banner option in the 
sshd_config that everyone's been talking about?
