When I login as root I see this prompt:

[root at vhost04 ~]#

When I login as a non-priviledged user I see this instead:


.bashrc and .bash_profile have identical contents in /root and
/home/user.  What causes the difference?  Why?  How does one change
the default so that all normal users get a [userid at hostname pwd]$

I have loked in/etc/profile.d and /etc/bashrc and I cannot see what
condition is triggering the different behaviour.
