Perhaps there could be a message added to /etc/motd as an
alternative for 6.2-R if its too late to be included in sysinstall.
Modification of a text file should be of less concern.

Using the motd might also bring it to the attention to those who
will just upgrade and never see sysinstall (as well as those who
almost never read mailing lists).

Just a thought.
