If you've got a /etc/profile.d directory, then it's better to do:
# echo uptime > /etc/profile.d/uptime.sh
# chmod a+x /etc/profiled./uptime.sh
All .sh scripts in /etc/profile.d are run by /etc/profile.
Doing it this way means that your changes won't be
clobbered by an upgrade (nor will to have to compare
.rpmsave files and merge changes manually).
