Setting up a new user
 
How do I create a new user? I've been running as root since I installed and I can't figure out how to make a new one.

the command you are looking for is adduser.
just type: "man adduser" to see how it works.

You can also use the useradd command, but the adduser command is a script written by Patrick Volkerding to easily setup a user so you don't have to type it all out in one command but rather prompted for each and all the values given to the user.
