    Have a look at the Manual Pages:

    $man useradd

    what flavor of unix ?

    If you are not familiar with commands you can use several tools to create users .

    Eg: use admintool to create users on Solaris.
    use SMIT to create users in IBM AIX.

    On solaris I use "useradd" command. check the man pages. The syntax is as follows:

    usage: useradd [-u uid [-o] | -g group | -G group[[,group]...] | -d dir |
    -s shell | -c comment | -m [-k skel_dir] | -f inactive | -e expire ] login
    useradd -D [-g group | -b base_dir | -f inactive | -e expire ]
