that sort of functionality is built into most of the shells (bash, tcsh,

unfortunately, there isn't enough space on the install floppies for
a full-featured shell....there was only enough room for the tiny ash
shell, which doesn't have command line history or filename completion

in other words, it'll be there after you've got through the install.

i don't know if there's any extension program to do it.  probably not
because there's no real need for one since it's built into the shell.
