[bf1942] exploit for Linux server?

admin.servermessage "your message here" using a remote console application
will show it in yellow.  

I've experienced some problems with admin.servermessage with the in game
console.. Since it requires quotes around the message it interferes with the
quotes for the execremotecommand.  So I just use underscores for spaces with
admin.servermessage in game.

Gray messages come up with game.sayall from a server console.

hnmm, you know, the messages I saw were complaining about lag, now that I
think about it.  That makes a lot of sense--

btw, how _do_ you inentionally create a grey server message?  I've been
fiddling with admin.servermessage (I believe) but it keeps giving me syntax
