RH 9.0 user & group help......


I login in as ROOT and type: group -g mygroup and can not not create that group. It say: bash group command not found However, when I use AddUserGUI tool to add group and it work fine. There is another problem when I use comand prompt to create user with underscore ("_") ie first_last it work fine but if I use AddUserGUI tool it does not let me create the user with "_" between the user name.(ie first_last)

Anyone know why it does that? and 1 more thing. What is: bin/bash; /bin/nologin; /bin/bash2..... under shell access form?



Thank you

Thank you.

Now I have another question:
If I create a user (name user1) and set this user belong to group group1 and this user will have home directory locate at /home/home-users/user1 How am I going to type?

Thank you
