Code:
su -
useradd
or with Pat's wrapper-script
Code:
su -
adduser
A "man -k user | grep add" would have helped ;)



Cheers,
Tink

Two more questions about the users:
How do I add passwords to the user accounts?
How do I delete user accounts. " adduser -d [username] "?

Code:
[scuzzy@localhost scuzzy]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost scuzzy]# useradd sarah
[root@localhost scuzzy]# passwd sarah
Changing password for user sarah.
New UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
[root@localhost scuzzy]# userdel -r sarah
[root@localhost scuzzy]# exit
exit
[scuzzy@localhost scuzzy]$
Breakdown:
Added sarah (useradd)
created password for sarah (passwd)
deleted sarah (userdel)
BTW: Sarah is my Fiance, and doesn't want to know how to use linux. And it's the first name that came to mind
