Sounds like your user is using a different shell than root is. Try "finger <user>" to find out what shell it is using (probably the Bourne Shell, /bin/sh), and check the documentation for the shell (if it's /bin/sh, see the manual with "man sh"). Or change the user's shell (e.g., with "chsh"). -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
