Also note, if you want the user to have their own group for their files, you have to create it before you create the user. Some care and thought must be given to user IDs as well, both adding a user and group will use the next available which will probably put your user id as something other than your group ID... this isn't a bad thing but may cause confusion later if you change distros or ids.
