At a command-line prompt, type in 'hash' (without the quotes) and hit
the ENTER key. E.g.

    $ hash
hits    command
   1    /usr/bin/fetchmail
   1    /home/billm/bin/Fetchmail
   1    /bin/ls
   1    /usr/bin/dig


    $ set +h
    $ hash
    -su: hash: hashing disabled

Man bash is chock-full of stuff you need to know.

That's in the book - follow it's instructions. At various points of
entering shells and chroots, there are things to do. Disabling hashing
is one of those things _in_certain_instances_.
