Adduser Prompt

When I add users to linux i would like to be prompted for the different options pertaining to the user for example the users home directory , group, etc.

I have been administering a linux box that allows me to type

Read this thread:

I posted the script from a Slackware system that prompts you for all this information when creating a user with the adduser command.

Have fun.
