Creating users from website

I'm currently working on a free webmail project and so far I've managed to get a working email and web server up and running on Mdk 9.2.

My only problem is now I've no idea how to create new users, ie. I want people to be able to sign up, this should automatically create a user account on the server with a password of their choice.

Are there any scripts etc out there? or can someone point me in the right direction?

I'm using, Apache with PHP on a Mandrake 9.2 box.

Any help would really be appreciated!

PHP is fantastic. Actually you can do pretty much the same with it like you were using the console. Try checking out the site for details on functions and scripts. It is the best site ever for PHP help.
