Modify The Scrolling Message Located On The Front Of A Dell Poweredge 2650

Earlier I was doing some work on a Dell Poweredge 2650 with CentOS Linux installed on it which we use for a development server at the shop. The message on the screen had been set awhile back with a joke message but I forgot how it was set so while I was poking around in the BIOS for some floppy disk settings I stumbled across how to modify the message that scrolls across the tiny screen on the front of the Dell PE2650 and wanted to share. Below is more information regarding how to modify the message and what it looks like once it has been modified.
