Subject: [CentOS] How to display the IP on the welcome screen

Hi all,
I'm running CentOS 5.4 in a VMware guest, with the host connected to a DHCP
enabled LAN
When CentOS comes up, I would like to see the IP adress displayed on the
welcome screen.
This would save me the hassle of logging in the VM, getting the IP, and
logging off before finally ssh'ing to the VM.


Is this to be shown on the GUI welcome screen or when you eg ssh in?
