See those:

        set promptchars = "%#"
        set prompt = "%n@%m:%~%# "

Or even:

        set prompt = "[%T] %n@%m:%~%# "
        set prompt = "[%T] *%h =%? :%m/%l @%n %~%B%#%b "
        set prompt = "*%h=%? [%T] %n@%m/%l:%~%B%#%b "

There's lots of customization that you can do with csh's prompt
variable; "man csh" is really very interesting.

Ah yes, and don't forget to

	set autolist

which is very handy, by the way.
