no ****ing way! this is too much, i am really annoyed now
ok, so maybe this page i was looking at was just blatantly lieing, but it gave me the impression that to add a user you type useradd [options] [username]
so i typed, as root
useradd -gusers -pmypassword -d/home/Richard -m richard
but i cant log on.
always says password is incorrect.
so i then (admitedly stupidly) used usermod. i wanted to change the root password so that it wasnt just auto login, to make it more secure.
usermod -prootpassword root
now guess what? i cant login as root either!!!!
have i just broken everything? what the **** is up with this? i have never had any problems command line administrating stuff before
