    Descriptor for Bash Prompt

    OK:

    I'm a linux noob. However, I know enough to be dangerous, and have done quite well up to this point.

    Granted it was much easier when I was only playing around with 1 tivo. However, now I have 2.

    How can I change the bash prompt to something more usefull?

    I believe it goes in the .profile but I cant remember how to do it...

    anyone help me on this?

    Code:
    export PS1='[\u@\h \W]\$'
    (or something)

    The \W is the last part of your path.
