Thanks absolutly right. The root account is set to /bin/csh and the normal
user was using /bin/sh.
What I have done now is set the default shell for the system, root & normal
user to bash, but now I am still left with the problem of the £ sign not
working from the console or in vi. When typing in "ee" the pound sign works
