Today on the arch linux ama on r/linux, I talked with SvenStaro and Foxboron on making a message show up on boot for the arch boot media

I added a few lines to .zlogin (what I think is what gets launched upon login with zsh) that shows a message on how to install arch linux, so that new users aren't staring at the abyss of the terminal when they plug in the install media for the first time

I've never committed to a project before, nor am I very experienced, so I would check this with caution, as I think it should work, but I have not tested it. also apologies for the poor formatting, I have no idea what I am doing

also, I did have to resend this email, as I sent the thing through gmail the first time, so apologies about the duplicate email
