How to login as a normal user?


Hi,

How can I login as a normal user on Slackware 9.1? I have created an account, but Slackware boots with the root account.

Thanks for any help.

What do you mean "boots with the root account"? Does it automatically boot and login as root?

The easyest n00b way to create another account is the "kuser" command within X.
