You need to edit the motd.txt in your /cstrike dir. You can use HTML in it but keep it simple.

I recommend making a backup of your motd.txt file after you've made your customizations. It will be ovrwritten on every update. Might as well include backups for server.cfg and mapcycle.txt while you're at it.

THERE ARE A LOT OF TUTORIALS OUT THERE WHERE YOU CAN SIMPLY COPY AND PASTE THE MOTD, than you can add your info and be done. here is
i have 2 motd's that i like. 1 posts rules, the other posts our website on the motd as you enter the server

heres the one that posts rules, and has links to my webpageand stats page. simply copy this to a text document and put your own info into it, then paste it in your motd in your server .
