After i login into my linux account,the default shell is bash, how can i set the default to tcsh.Also I check the my home directory,there is no .cshrc or .login files. I don't know in which files my PATH variable is set. In /etc/csh.login file, the PATH which is set is different from what displys on the screen when I type "echo $PATH".

if you don't have access to /etc/passwd, try chsh.
