    Red Hat 7.1 user accounts

    How do I set up user accounts in Red Hat 7.1 using X?


    How would I go about setting up a 386 as a router using RH 7.1?
    I have found documentation on other versions of linux but not 7.1.

    Thats when you install. I already have it setup and I want to edit my current user and add some more.

    Apply the information from the other versions documentation. Most of it will be the same. If you have specific questions, then ask.

    You can always use the adduser command (or is it useradd), but that is from the command line. It depends on if you are using KDE or Gnome or something else if you wanna do it in X.

    has it to be X?
    why not:
    [root@localhost/root]# useradd youruser
    [root@localhost/root]# passwd youruser

    chmod
    type man chmod for further help

    I have found documentation on other versions of linux but not 7.1.
    Some people like gui more than command line. Casper, launch a terminal window and type linuxconf & ... That will get you the gui interface to add users and such (fair warning, the thing is buggy as ****)

    Now as for setting up RH7.1 as a router on a 386 it should be pretty close to the same procedure for other distros. One book I used that I found very helpful is Linux Network Administrator's Guide 2nd Edition by O'Reilly as well as the HOWTOs for insight.
