Help displaying login banner on Ubuntu?

 I've had no success trying to get a login banner to appear on a freshly 
installed 64-bit Ubuntu Gutsy system. 

I tried modifying the /etc/gdm/gdm.conf and /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom 
files, which only led to an error "No servers were defined in the 
configuration file and XDMCP was disabled."

I also will note that I've tried a few fresh installs of Gutsy on this 
system, performed apt-get updates each time, and, when trying to sudo 
gdmsetup, then selecting the Local tab, and selecting Custom in the 
Welcome Message section, the window freezes for a minute, then crashes 
with a core dump.   This leads me to believe that Gutsy, at least updated, 
has problems with displaying a custom message. 

I haven't tried making the change with an out-of-box install. 


Any ideas if these kinds of bugs/problems/obstacles have been or are going 
to be addressed in Hardy?
