same thing came to my mind. You can use attribute 'preferedLanguage' and
then modify each users (well, create template and copy it over) .profile
with shell script invoking % ldapsearch; (or something like that) and
'case' control structure for language on which basis will be eg.
I'd leave '/etc/motd' empty.
I've found nothing on ldap+motd in the way you want, but don't take my
word for it.
So much for very quick solution [confirmation].
Hope it helps,
