Re: to remove the loging prompt and password...............

I have got a little patch to mingetty that avoids the call to /bin/login
altogether, and starts a shell for me, instead of the usual login/password
procedure. Mind you, it is very dangerous to use on a production server, I use
it only on one VT of my laptop.

If you are interested, mail me offline.


The prompt for all occasions:
export PS1="F:\$(pwd | tr '/[a-z]' '\134\134[A-Z]')> "
