Changing cursor shape in Xfce,Fedora 16

I just installed fedora 16.I am used to gnome.started desktop with xfce.must say its pretty impressive and compact...but i could nt find an option to change the cursor type to underline when using bash shell(Right click --> Preferences) .The cursor block at prompt is irritating as I am used to the underline cursor style I set on my centos 6. Can someone tell me how to do it? Thanks.

Open the shell. Top line, click settings -->Configure Profiles-->Shell-->Edit-->Advanced-->Cursor.

You can select Block, Underline, I-beam, blink, and change colour.

Hope this helps.
