Default Very WEIRD Problem! Prolly very easy question.

I just got my dedicated server 2 days ago, when i used to login to ssh, i had a "#" and it was more user friendly. now i have "-bash-3.00#" how can i get back to the default? I am running CentOS.

You probably have changed the login shell of the user 'root'. Either you edited the file /etc/password directly (bad) or used a command like 'usermod -s <something>'. I don't use CentOS, so I can't tell you what the default for root is. I think it should be '/bin/sh'.
