How can I do one or both of the following:

(1) Find a previous command in the *shell* buffer via search C-s, and have 
pressing enter insert the command as the current command, but without 
execution. This would allow me to edit the command before executing it, but not 
have to modify the command as it previously exists in the *shell* buffer.

(2) type the first part of the command, and have M-p search for the previous 
occurrence of the command that starts with the same pattern I've typed in. This 
is an xemacs feature I sorely miss.  C-s just isn't the same. If often finds 
all sorts of other cruft you have to skip over.
