tcsh shell to bash

Hello, I just started a new job and the computer defaults to tcsh. I would like to use bash. How do I set up my profile so that when I login it is automatically set to Bourne ? Thanks - Jameson

If its a Linux distro, start a terminal and do
$chsh -s /bin/bash
After that logout and back in again. If you are running any other variant of *nix, then make sure you enter the right path for bash because its not always in /bin.
