Managing User Accounts in Redhat 9


What are the tools (in the GUI and the bash shell) that are available to manage users in redhat 9?

Thanks for your responses!

If you mean the very old Red Hat 9 and not Fedora, then GUI it's redhat-config-users and usermod, useradd and userdel for the shell.

Really though, why are you using Red Hat 9? It's out of date and no longer supported, so you'd be better off upgrading to a newer distribution.

Reply to why am I using Rehat 9...

Redhat 9 is all that I am allowed to use in this business I am in, it pays good, and I must support it.

Legacy apps OK but it does make me wonder what kind of business it is you're in?

And seeing as none of the new software ( post 2003) will run on RH 9 .I am wondering TOO ?
your company must like taking the VERY REAL - near 100% - chance of running a Zombie box.


you can dig around the net for the RELAY old ( 2001) rh9 gui tools , but ... if you find them is any ones guess .

here is a link to the manual page ( from google)

Still using RH6.2 It must still survive about 2 years and then it can go.

It's not your fault but that of the company they are starving you with Red Hat Llinux 9. Now that you know it is so out of date it's way past moldy I hope you set yourself up with a home machine to run a proper current GNU/Linux distribution on and really pick up learning stuff. If you'd rather not install one there's two lists of Live CDs that you could choose one from and run w/o occupying your harddisk: Frozentech's Live CD list and Distrowatch CD-based Linux Distributions and Live Linux CDs. Have fun!
