When you type ksh from the root prompt and you get a "#" for a prompt, you are
at that point in the Korn Shell. You may source your .kshrc by . ~/.profile
and this will pick up the environment the you have defined. If you would like
a different promt the set it in the .kshrc file with PS1="$" or whatever you
may want your prompt to be set to.
