You don't need it in both .profile and .kshrc, the former is used by login shells.. the latter for interactive. (For the most part, a .profile is all you'll normally need..)

When you define something in your profile, you need to 'export' it.

export PS1

export PS1="..."

After changes, you need to login again... if this doesn't work, please post the relevant section of the files here in [code][/code] tags.
