Thanks, I knew about all of these, but now that I think about it again, I realize that I can do what I want simply by changing the hostname of each distro to something specific and
informative, and that's very satisfactory.

I'm now running three machines here, each with several copies of various
linii available.  It gets a bit confusing.  I'm wondering if there might be
something I can add to my prompt that could help me remind myself where I'm
at.  I'm open to any suggestions, but one idea I had was something to
identify the volume label of the current root directory.  That would do it
if it can be done. Can it?
PROMPT="%n@%m %~: "

n = username

m = hostname up to first "."

%~ is the current directory, using ~ for $HOME when appropriate.
