I have recently installed Slackware Linux and I have reached the point of logging in as root. But when I try to add users using adduser, it gives an error message that the file systems /etc and /home are read only and unable to create an account. I have tried to use chmod 755 for the two directories but without success. Can you please help?

the command is remount and type --help.
