I'm thinking it would be best inside the beginning note. 2 reasons.

1) The disconnection you mention
2) The command is long. It prolly won't fit on a PDF page so it needs
to be split with a backslash and then *no* spaces before the rest of
the command. This would look much better inside the note box than if
it were just on the page not inside a box.

A short sentence after what you already have saying the following
additional script is necessary to the command below that creates the
/etc/login.defs file is necessary. Please reword, but you know what
I'm driving at. (sed considers any -e data to be a "script", phrase
it as you feel necessary)
