changing your shell
chsh is another thing that's been farmed off to NetInfo. So, if you want to change your login shell - zsh is included with OS X, but not, I think, with all the bells and whistles that make it so lovely (autocompletion on man pages, perl docs, cvs repositories;
colour-themed prompts ...) so it's probably worth downloading it and recompiling - then you need to do something like
sudo niutil -createprop / /users/dave shell /bin/zsh. The GUI interface to this
didn't work last time I tried :-(.
niutil -read / /users/dave will show the list of property / value pairs you can edit.
It's also by messing about with the NetInfo commands that you can set up OS X to run NFS as a server. You'll
probably have a /exports NetINfo path already. I can't remember how to do it -- but you don't need
the shareware GUI that's kicking about.
