I am trying to figure out a way to output some information to the
console (system boots to runlevel 3) from an init script.

Here is what I've tried:
add echo "$SOMEINFO" into the init script and pipe it to wall, and put
that in the init script.

This doesn't seem to work, I was thinking of outputting to motd to
achieve this, but wondered if anyone knows a better way.
Perhaps using the at command?
