Uplink Easter Egg - Hidden Prolouge

Get the box of Uplink (you know, the one in REAL LIFE) and open it up. Look where the CD is. Take it out if you haven't already. Look at the "push here" button. You should see some white writing behind it, namely;

...uter Crime Scand...
...s technobrain eve...
...him tick, what for...

...than most of the...

...it. "No, Ms. Smit...

Moving on, grab the box and open it up at a 180 degree angle, i.e. --.

Open it further back, as if the box is a book that you are folding back so that only one page is visible. When the angle is like so: \/ the clear protective cover of the cover should pop up, like so:

\-/ Where \ and / are the box, and - is the cover.

Reach your hand down and slide out the cover. You should now be holding a cover, and a box with no cover. Put the box down and look at the cover. On one side should be what is visible if you look at the box. On the other side is the white writing we saw before, but in full. It is a sort of prolouge to the game.

There is a transcript of it here:

Actually it's the first part of Mentor's Last Words, a manifesto by a hacker by the name (obviously) Mentor. It's a good read if you can find it.
