Unhappy problem in creating new user


I'm kinda confused on what happened to my Suse box.

Whenever I'm trying to create a new user and tried to log it on suse prompts me this:

No directory /home/<created user>
logging in with home = "/"

Before, when I'm adding a new user, it just log in smoothly and no prompts like this...

please help...

What command You are using to create user?

by adduser or useradd?

How to fix the problem?
You just need to create a directory with login of your user
