Unhappy Problem adding users


I'm using Red Hat version 9. I've added users already and now when I try to add more, I get the message

"The user database cannot be read. Program will exit now."

I can't even get in to add or edit my users and I don't know what I've done. Can any one help?

Yes, I was logged in as root so it can't be that. Any more suggestions welcome!
