Don't set root's shell to bash unless bash is statically linked and is on
the root filesystem. If you do, single user mode will cause some confusion.
(ldd should say that /bin/bash is not a dynamic executable).
If you want a bourne shell for root, use /bin/sh (and add "set -o emacs" to
/root/.profile and /.profile).
