Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Running Suse 10.0 on an x86_64 machine. Have been using the bash shell, which is of course the default shell. I've just installed some software that required me to run it's particular installation script from the csh - so I simply changed shells temporarily >csh and carried on from there. All went well.
To run the actual program in question now I have to change to the csh and then 'source...../setup'
My questions are :
1. Where can I find the .cshrc file to put this 'source....' line into? It's not in my home directory with .bashrc and 'find' has failed to turn anything up.
2. Even if I put this line into .cshrc, is this file run everytime I change shells - from bash to csh? I really don't want to change shells permanently.
3. I tried doing something like this in .bashrc :
but I reckon that this is a bit wacky! Would be grateful for any help. God forbid I actually have to type csh followed by source..../setup evertime I want to run the thing...
