Hey Ribo01,

What you want is useradd and userdel.

Those are links to the MAN pages on die.net - hopefully that will get you what you need.

Hi,

You need to use the following command
Quote:
useradd username
The above command will add a user.

Quote:
userdel username
The above command will delete the user.
