Well, the least confusing way would be to simply open the web browser, find a web page and use the menu commands at the top of the browser window to save a web page. Depending on which user you are logged in as, it should save to the home directory of that user, I think. Then you can open up a terminal window and enter "ls" at the command line. It should list the file you saved (probably .html file).

If you know how use the menu to open up a text editor, you could type something then save it . You should then see that file also when you are in your home directory and enter "ls".

Login as user, then simply do:

touch file1 file2 file3

That's how you would create empty files under each user. What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Also, use better thread titles in the future, your's is utter crap and doesn't describe your actual question.

ok, I thought this was how you created user accounts in red hat linux:

Then I thought you could log out and log back in as the new user with the newly created password.
