Redhat 9 User Manager Problem

Hi guys,

Newcomer to Linux. Setup Redhat 9 about a week ago. All has been going pretty well, so far until I tried starting up Users and Groups and I get the following error:

WARNING The User Database cannot be read. Program will exit now.

Is this a service I need to start?
