[CentOS] Prompt for chrooted users

We have a requirement to allow ssh access to a server in order to
provide a secure link to one of our legacy systems.  I would like to
chroot these accounts.

I have this working except for one small detail, the user's prompt in
the ssh session.  Each user has their shell set to /bin/bash in
/etc/passwd.  However, instead of getting the prompt defined in their
.bash_profiles we see this:


when we are expecting this:

[username at hostname dir]$

So, before I go messing around moving files I would some information
from you as tio what I have overlooked.  Do I need to move something
like etc/passwd and /etc/group into the chroot/etc?
