Can't Find "Users/Groups"

Am using UBUTU 6.06 LTS. I have "lost" how to access the USERS/GROUPS area. I found this in UBUTU "help":
Getting Started
You can start USERS ADMINISTRATION TOOL in the following ways:
Choose SYSTEM TOOLS-Users and Groups

Execute the following command line: users-admin

When you start USERS ADMINSTRATION TOOLM you will be prompted for the administrator pass
Word. After entering the administrator password, the following window is displayed.
However, my APPLICATIONS menu does not have a "SYSTEM TOOLS" option and I cannot make the command line work. I have "done" something, because just a few days ago I could access this area (used it to set up alternate user name for myself) for making web and e-mail access.

Any ideas?

Try seeing if it got off the menu, use the Alacarte thingy. Or if it still exists, by seeing if it completes with [tab]. I can't remember, really, I haven't used ubuntu for a few weeks, I switched to arch.
