    Default New User - Standard Priviliges

    I just need a regular user account when I don't want to play around as root. I'm also very accustomed to "sudo" at this point as well, so having a regular account would almost fit better.

    useradd - "fill in the blank" is this fine to do alone or is there any safety precautions I need to take?

    I just need an account that I can use for Starcraft 2 or Diablo 3, Web browsing, and etc... Is there a complete guide to this? I found some guides, but with BT5 R3 I am brand new.

    On another note I'm surprised how much easier and more flawless this seems than Ubuntu from the start. (Long time Ubuntu user ready to switch).

    Solved... I just added some rights and I'm good on this one.

    Useradd <user>

    usermod --groups admin,disk,cdrom,audio <user>

    I had to take out cdrom, but it seemed to work just fine.
