recently installed freebsd 3.2.-stable on some old intel boxes. have
a reg user account on all boxes, with bash-2.03 as default shell.
however the contents of bashrc are not being read. no alias take effect,
nor do the PS lines to set the prompt. the prompt always displays the
bash version number.
on some redhat6.0 boxes, found i had to change the prompt from
/etc/.profile (configed global). found a .profile on the root dir. but
looks like that one is for the root account as well as formated for a
csh or tcsh default.
is this the correct file to modify, or am i looking in the wrong
