editing console

hi i edited my console prompt correctly, using my .bashrc and setting PS1 = blah. however, when i switch to root, roots prompt annoys me (im on openSuse 10.2). where is roots config file? i checked /root, and /etc/init.d/ doesnt seem to lead me anywhere. thanks!

/root/.bashrc in my system. Have you tried creating that file?

Have you tried setting the prompt globally?
