and i believe you'll find this one in 'man bash' - look for the "PS1="
setting. In vi, type /PROMPTING<enter>/<enter> and you'll get all the
commands you can send to it. I think the above urls tell you which file
to put this in, i have mine in ~/.bash_profile. But if you wanted the
default prompt for all users to be the same, i think you can set it in
