yeah Debian must be different,
in Red Hat there is a /etc/bashrc. it is for system wide, the ~/.bashrc is for
user define. i use the /etc/bashrc for alias definitions and the /etc/profile
for the PATH. i don't know why, someone told me to do it that way in
Red Hat and it works. if i am wrong i would like to know.
