Z Shell on Fedora Core 6

Z Shell zsh.org. Apparently this is a very good alternative to bash, but this is all about getting out of the comfort zone, so here goes:

# tar zxvf zsh-4.2.6.tar.gz
# cd zsh-4.2.6
# more INSTALL
# ./configure
# make
# make check
# make install
# pico /etc/shells
-- added /usr/local/bin/zsh to the list of availables shells (/etc/shells).
# chsh
