Question Multiple Users

New to linux and was wondering how to set-up (4)other users besides me on machine .

I tried users and groups , but when they sign-in it shows my desk-top(my home folder) not their home folder .

How do I do this

new user setup

It is somewhat important to know the distro you are using.

I use Slackware, and with it, I go to a command prompt as root and enter adduser.
A series of questions are asked to which you may respond, and thats it.

Good Luck
