CLI Fedora 9 Server user setup


Hi,

How do I setup users from cli in Fedora Server 9. I can't run a gui as root and I cannot find how to set users up with admin rights.

Any help appreciated.

Also where can I find some decent Fedora manuals or wikis.

Thanks

Chris

The commands are: "useradd", "userdel" and "usermod".
I'm sorry, but I just known the related man pages as source of information for theses programs. However, they are pretty god and complete.
Use/modify the default settings at /etc/skel, /etc/login.defs and /etc/default/useradd or command line flags to change the default behaviour.
