    Default Users

    Greetings, I'm trying to create another user besides from Root since being logged in as root is a security hole in itself, nuff said. But whemever I try to create a new user I get this error message:

    Code:
    Creating new account...
    
    chfn: Unknown user newuser
    - Warning: an error occurred while setting finger information
    passwd: Unknown user newuser
    * WARNING: An error occured while setting the password for
               this account.  Please manually investigate this *
    Any idea what the problem might be?

    I'd also like to know how to delete users, I know you can do this "userdel -r usernamegoeshere" but that will only delete the it's home directory. I wanna delete a created account permanently
