When I'm using 'useradd -g users -m dummy' I get the following error message:
'useradd: unknown group 100'.
In my /etc/group I have 'users:x:100:' and 'newgrp users' allows me to enter the group. So somehow the group exists but not for 'useradd'.
The /etc/defaults/useradd was created in a WinXP using Notepad. Writing a new one using Emacs did the trick! I had this problem before, DOS and Linux use different line feeds...
Thanks for the fast reply!
