Modify your terminal shell prompt
Authored by: proproject on Mar 08, '03 10:05:01AM

So how do I get to a shell in the first place? Unix power user here, but
never owned a mac before.

  1. Open a Finder window.
  2. Click on the Applications icon
  3. Double-click the Utilities directory
  4. Double-click on the Terminal application
  5. Drag the Terminal icon to the dock and drop it there so you don't have to find it again.

Alternatively, if you have your login prompt setup so that you can type in the login name (as opposed to the mode where you pick it from a list), type >console and hit enter for console mode.

Can also get console mode on startup by holding down option-s or command-s (can't remember which).
