Unhappy user accounts manager doesn't work in X, RH8

Please help me with this:

I just received a linuxbox with RH8. I log in as root, startx, and try to add a new user, by clicking on the "Users and Groups" under the system settings.
It does nothing. No window nothing. Than I manually try to run the same
command, redhat-config-users, and gives me the following error message:

[root@bolyai root]# redhat-config-users
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/", line 36, in ?
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/", line 257, in __init__
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/", line 422, in refresh
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/", line 331, in refresh_users
gidNumber = userEnt.get(libuser.GIDNUMBER)[0]
IndexError: list index out of range
[root@bolyai root]#

Thank you!!!
