You can either run 'chsh' as the user, or as root, modify /etc/passwd. In
/etc/passwd, modify the last field of the line for your user; this field
specifies the shell you want. Either 'bash' or 'tcsh' will do command
completion, and perhaps others.

Es tut mir leid; I know nothing about internationalization and locale
settings in Unix. :^(

Also look at the FreeBSD Handbook, which is largely applicable and
extremely well-written (some details will be inaccurate for NetBSD,

Hth! :^)
