I see that you're using bash, so put the following lines into your .profile:
PS1="\u@\h\\\w\$ "
export PS1

Finally i get the prompt correctly because i delete the account and adduser again...

The freebsd default shell is /sh , right?
i assign to /usr/local/bin/bash .... so i get the correct prompt...

by the way, now the only problem is the .bash_history .....


Thanx
