setup (no need to install anything new).

Ok. There ain't much worth cracking my system for anyway. Here's the
/etc/passwd file from one machine below.
Thanks for any help with this!

Well, you seem to have 3 accounts, one with a space in it, and one with
different case. Do you really have 3 different accounts?
I only have one account on this machine. I'm not sure how the others
got created. The one with the space may have been created by the Palm
desktop software, since that's the name I use for sync'ing.
I don't know about the other two.
Is there something about this file that would prevent my
bashrc/.bash_profile from defining aliases?
