Hi Adam,

Here are the goodies..


mail:~# ls -l /etc/bash.bashrc
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root          211 Apr  8  2002 /etc/bash.bashrc


date is a little wrong, because I just set this system up.. Then CMOS date got messed up, and yesterday I fixed it..

mail:~# date
Sat May  8 01:08:56 PDT 2004

Do you think date would have caused this issue?

Thanks for your help,

Paul

after logging in as root, I did this sample run to show other weird
issues I am having ..
checkout this session...

-----------
mail:/usr/local/bin# whoami

mail:/usr/local/bin# su paul
bash: /etc/bash.bashrc: Permission denied



What is the output of
ls -l /etc/bash.bashrc

Should be something like this:

$ ls -l /etc/bash.bashrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 474 2004-01-24 15:28 /etc/bash.bashrc
