I can I create an alias and be able to use it each time I login?  Now I can create an alias, but when I logout and log back in I have to create it again.

If your using csh as your login shell, then create a .cshrc in your home directory and put your aliases there.  If your using ksh, then put them in .profile.

you can check your shell by looking at /etc/passwd
