hehe, thanks for works now :)

anybody know anything about the .bashrc?

and another you have to customize bash or something in order 
to get some keys to work?, eg: by hitting the HOME key it inserts this ~ 
symbol along with a tone from the PC speaker....and if i press the DELETE 
key it does the same...
also, the command prompt says: bash-2.05a#    is there some way to change 
what this says? I remember there is, just can't remember what file has to be
