Im running a red hat 7.3 server at home as kind of a way to teach myself Linux administration. Since Im using a GUI, I use the KUSER program to manage my user accounts. I was wondering how to add users to a linux server from the command line. I know that all KUSER does is edit the /etc/passwd file. So the question is how do I manage user accounts in the command line? Since ive been here ive come to realize that its a sin to run X on a server so I'd really like to learn all the linux commands instead of relying on the GUI.
