My guess (and that's all it is) would be that you'll need to study those
two files (the ones created) and figure out how to incorporate the
contents into ~/.bash_profile and ~/.bashrc unless you want to install
csh and use it instead. If you used csh I don't know if it uses a file
called .profile or not, but that might work. The only other alternative
would be to make it available to all logins by placing the stuff in
/etc/profile and /etc/bashrc instead.
