How to use "Users and Groups"

I have FC-5 and use KDE.

I need to be able to manipulate the data associated with users and groups. When I go into "Users and Groups" in FC-5 it only shows me. I don't know what do. I'm probably missing something. In SuSE when I went into Uses and Groups it would display a list of all the groups. Then you could just pick a group and edit it. Is there anything like that for FC-5? If there isn't I need to know how to work with "Users and Groups" in FC-5. For example how do you get it to display a different user or group and how do you manipulate (edit) the data.

I don't know about GUI tools provided by FC5 or KDE, but the basic commands you could use from the CLI would be 'cat /etc/passwd', 'cat /etc/group', 'useradd', 'usermod', 'groupadd', 'groupmod', 'id', 'groups', etc. That's the good thing about CLI ... use it with any distro. If you need to know about GUI tools specific to FC5 I'd ask in Forums->Linux->Linux-Distributions->Fedora
