    how do i add users in linux (i know i have to be logged in as root)

    how do i edit user accts so they can have 'root' authorities (like you can set a user to be a member of an admin group)..

    1) adduser username (if the adduser script doesnt prompt for a password, set one by running "passwd username")

    2) You don't. Your either a standard user or root. If other users need admin rights give them the password and tell them to su to root

    hi, actually i started messing around, theres an option for users control or somthing, i added a few users, and i actually added me to the group of the root, there are a lot of other groups just like win2k you can add to too... pretty cool
