Unhappy problem in creating new user


Opensourcerers,

I'm kinda confused on what happened to my Suse box.

Whenever I'm trying to create a new user and tried to log it on suse prompts me this:

No directory /home/<created user>
logging in with home = "/"

Before, when I'm adding a new user, it just log in smoothly and no prompts like this...

please help...

thanx!!!

-AKO-

What command You are using to create user?

by adduser or useradd?

How to fix the problem?
You just need to create a directory with login of your user
