basic .bashrc question


when I edit my .bashrc to give me some additional information other than
-sh-3.00$
Nothing happens. Currently I have:
Quote:
# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
. /etc/bashrc
fi

# User specific aliases and functions
export PS1='\u@\h:\w\$ '
when I manually enter export PS1='\u@\h:\w\$ ' at the prompt it works.

So I assume the /etc/bashrc is overriding it?

How can I get around this?
