"To add a new user account, log in to the root account" how do i do this (im new)
i dont know how to do this. I am using xandros so i dont now if it is even possible. if so, when i try to open a root shell it says password:. text doesnt show when i enter it. when enter is pressed, it returns to the user/home> shell. damn im a newb.
When you see a # you are root
whoami also gives you some indication
Or you could use sudo
The text never shows when you type in a password.
The brackets [ ] indicate your input. Do not include the brackets in the command.
disk - gives the user access to disk drives.
cdrom - same
plugdev- I beleive plug-dev are usb devices.
wheel - you may not want to add for security reasons.
lp - enables access to hp-toolbox for printers and scanners.
The, -d /home/[user name]/, creates a personal directory for your user in the /home/ directory.
-s /bin/bash enables you to use the bash command line as default. Google bash linux
hope this helps
