I am still not sure what to change or how to verify it was successful. In Lion's, I have opened Preferences -> Settings -> Shell, checked the "Run command" box, and filled in "/opt/local/bin/bash -l". The "Run inside shell" checkbox is not checked. The bash port is installed. If I open a new terminal window and type "echo $SHELL" it still prints "/bin/bash". Is that a correct way to verify that these steps were not successful? What else should I be doing?
