Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have PC Quest Linux 8.0 based on RedHat Linux 8.0.
I want to create a new user account. However, I dont want to use the command 'useradd'.
I would like to know if KDE offers any GUI to create a new user. If not, how can I create a new user account? I am not clear about the options that are required with the 'useradd' command like the default group name, and userID etc....It would be better, if the system can take care of these additional arguements.
I therefore want a graphical alternative to the 'useradd' command.
If there is no such GUI available, can anyone help me create a new user --- lets say, 'abc'?
If you have to use the command line useradd then you can get a full description of useradd in almost readable English with:
I am aware that i can display the help section using the 'man' command and the --help option too. But, as I told u, my problem is, that I am not aware of the values that I need to put in as arguments to the various 'useradd' options - like group name, userID, name of the shell (although I know its Bash)...etc...
It is because of this reason I was looking for a GUI .....I suppose then there is no such GUI available for RedHat Linux...is it? ....
