Look at ulimit, it's a bash builtin, so man bash, search for ulimit (I'm
assuming loads of stuff, like bash is your shell ... ;)

Just to get you going, a 'ulimit -c umlimited' will dump everything that
the programs going to (I got a 10Mb core of the quake networking test
when it SEGV'd on me with that, so watchout ;).
