|I downloaded ksh and wanted to make it my login shell. I tried to use the
|chpass command:
|zit1: {1} chpass -s ksh
|chpass: ksh: non-standard shell
|chpass: /etc/master.passwd: unchanged
|Why is ksh not a standard shell ? How can I fix this ? Thanks.

Look at the /etc/shells file:

{io!dlr} /etc 147> ls -al /etc/shells
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  161 Feb 10  1995 /etc/shells

{io!dlr} /etc 148> less shells
# List of acceptable shells for chpass(1).
# Ftpd will not allow users to connect who are not using
# one of these shells.


edit it and add ksh. prob need to use full path. then use chpass to change 
your shell.
