This is referring to your environemnt settings (use printenv to view them and change them with setenv) ... if you set these correctly (you should set them in your .login or .tcshrc file) dt should work fine.

Yes, you need to run a proper shutdown of the system with a shutdwon -h now.
Once you get your shell prompt back, you should be in single user at which pointyou can powerdown your system. What you have been doing is very harsh towards
the system. Try rebuilding your devices from the installer if device
driver corrupts are the only problems you are having. Otherwise, it may be
necessarry to reinstall parts of your system or even rebuild the file system.
