Prompt w/ current dir and user


I've finally gotten Slackware-Current installed, and it seems pretty good. However, I notced that the prompt for the console is root@arborlon~# and in GTerm its bash-2.05b#. Is there any way (I know there is...) to modify this, and to get color coded file names as well? Thanks.

Check out some of these links:

I know... it's a freebsd link but I've used this on various *nix boxes before with success.

On colors:

A long shot but look at this:

Hope it's helpful.
