I asked a similar, but more specific, question a week or two ago: "how
do I create a new user under either Gnome or KDE?".  The point for me
was that I could not find a menu item, leaving me to conclude that
creating a new user is not important enough (to RedHat) to take the
menu space.  There was not much response from the list, but my
recollection is that there is a usermanager under KDE, but that did
not come up for me; and no-one could tell me how to do it under Gnome.
I ended up using groupadd and adduser.  Silly ain't it?
