Thanks liaty, good suggestion, but I had already tried looking for anything to do with user management, there doesn't seem to be anything at all. I'm thinking that because Puppy is one of those "minimal" distributions. From what I've read it's intended to run as root because it's generally used as a client O/S rather than a server O/S and it normally runs live from CD or USB stick etc. I have it installed on the hard drive though.
I think I might dump it and find something else. The only reason I got it is because I am trying to find a lite Linux version to run as a file server on an old P2 box with 128MB RAM. It runs beautifully on that box, Samba works fine, everything is great except security at the console.
