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

2:
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)..

thanks!

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
