man chsh
dont know what distribution your working with.
or you could try changing the shell in /etc/passwd
anyhow you need ksh installed first.

The manual way:
  1. Make sure you've got ksh installed on your system. If not, get it from here.
  2. As root, open up /etc/passwd in any text editor.
  3. Change /bin/bash to /bin/ksh in the line describing the account you are using.
Or just use chsh, pretty simple :)
