In your home directory usually - do a long list with the -a option
% ls -la
and you will see the . files also.

If you still don't have them, I know on SUN there are default copies in /etc/skel/ for the different shells. Just copy local.cshrc to your home directory and rename it .cshrc. Set the ownership and permissions and add anything you need into it. Same for local.login to .login.

If you are using a different OS than Solaris, post back.

I found 3 files on /etc/skel

local.cshrc local.login local.profile

Could someone tell me the difference between these files?

They are simply default files to help set up users. The local.cshrc and local.login are for users with csh, the local.profile is for sh and ksh. I don't know why there isn't a local.kshrc as ksh can also have one of those.
