    Hello everybody,


    I am new to Linux. I use a RHEL 5 machine at work. There is no 'switch user' option in the lock screen. So, the only way someone could login is by logging out my account (I am not talking about ssh here). Is there a way to display a short message such as 'job running. do not logout' on the lock screen. If so, can some one explain how to do it? It would be pretty helpful if there is an option to do so out of the box in every distro.
