rbash as in restricted-bash? If so, 'bash -r' or 'cp /bin/bash
/bin/rbash; rbash' will try to do what you want. However, I make no
claims that the restricted mode of bash is secure, only that it will
perform the restrictions mentioned in 'man bash'. Which is why I don't
bundle the name rbash in the bash package. But if enough people want it,
I suppose I could (it's a one-line change to my cygport build script).
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
