Add newuser


Hello Everyone. I got myself a dedicated server from Godaddy.com. Server is on Fedora Core 2.0. I'm trying to add a new user to the box, but somehow i keep on getting this message. Can you help me out please? Here's what I did...

#su root
entered my password
#adduser dude2cool

Here's the error.

The command is useradd, not adduser, should work that way

It doesn't matter which of those commands you use as adduser links to useradd.
ls -al /usr/sbin |more
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Sep 27 22:55 adduser -> useradd

It would likely work better if you use a dash ( su - ) or the full path to command: /usr/sbin/adduser
