case `id -u` in
     0) PS1='${PS1} # ';; # root
     *) PS1='${PS1} $ ';; # everyone else

When I log in, I am greeted with:
${PS1} $ $

$PS1 nie ${Ps1}

However, if I su to root, I get:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] /home/user]#

That is what I wanted, but for some reason it is not working for a
normal user.  I thought perhaps the problem could be that .bash_profile
is only loaded when a non-login shell is spawned, but a quick
consultation of man bash revealed that bash reads ~/.bash_profile when
it is invoked as a login shell.

My next thought was that it was a permissions issue, but:
chmod 777 .bash_profile

That did not change the results, the output was still the same as above.
This is all being done at the console, by the way.

Appreciate any advice,
