Q: When I log in for the first time the system prompts me to change my password but it doesn't work. What do I do ?
A: The reason most people have this problem is due the system expecting you to enter your temporary password (that you logged in with) again BEFORE you type your new password twice. Please see ForcedChangePasswordInstructions
 Q: How do I change my default shell?
A:
Login to master.cs.rochester.edu and type chsh (Instructional network account holders use master.csug.rochester.edu). Current valid shells are "/bin/sh", "/bin/bash", "/bin/csh", and "/bin/tcsh". Updates are generally distributed to all machines by the following morning.
