Dear Friends,

I am really out of my wits, Please help me.  I am new to FreeBSD though I
have some basic of Linux.  I have editted most of /etc files including
passwd.  On the first line of the root entry, i changed default shell
 assigned by sysinstall ) to /bin/bash.

However, Everytime I boot, I always get csh instead of bash.  On regular
account ( user account ), it is correct.

Please help me how to change csh to bash.  The path to bash is correct, I
modified both entry ( root and leonard account by setting csh to bash ) but
root never worked while user account worked.
