On many Unix systems you can change some of your default information,
such as your full name, by typing the following at your Unix prompt:

   chfn

If chfn is not available try "passwd -f".  If neither of these are
available then you will need to contact your system administrator and
ask him/her to change your full name, etc.

After you have changed your information check that they are in place
by fingering yourself.  Also to see a different display of your
information type the following at your Unix prompt:

   finger

This displays a one line description of everyone currently logged on
your system.

For more information see the chfn(1), passwd(1), and finger(1) man pages.
