I'm running Redhat Linux 6.2 and I'm trying to set my path, but I'm not sure how. I'm also not sure what shell I'm running. I tried adding to /root/.cshrc but that didn't work. Also I'm telneting to the server.

You sorta need to know what shell you are using. Then you set the PATH in the shell resource file in your home directory:
bash: /home/you/.profile OR .login
tcsh: /home/you/.tcshrc OR .cshrc
and so forth

How do you find out what shell you are using?

i think you just type ps to see which programs are running. one of them should be your shell, right?

All Redhat use bash as a default shell. If you haven't changed to another, then bash is your current shell.

Thanks. I found out that in the /etc/passwd file you can define the shell and I am using bash.
