Thank you - this works fine (I'd better go and look at setting up info or
man next :-). Seems my HOME and /etc/passwd were set up okay before and
it was just this that needed to change. Thanks also to the others who
answered my quesion !
I am still curious about the various advantages of logging in to a Bash
shell on my NT desktop though.
You need to read the bash.info file. bash -login will not read the
.bashrc file. You will need to add to the /etc/profile "source
~/.bashrc". This will execute the .bashrc file of the directory pointed
to by HOME.
