Where is 'adduser'

I've just an almost complete install of Linux 2.x from the
CDROMs included in the book 'Linux Configuration & 
Installation'.  I am up and running from harddisk just fine.
However, I cannot find 'adduser' anywhere.  I have searched
both CDROMS to no avail.  I found 'newuser', but this is
a non-user-friendly program.

Thanks.

I installed Slackware 3.2. adduser was installed at /usr/sbin/adduser

I can only comment on 1.2.13, which is what I run at home.
Adduser can only be executed by root, so will not be visible to non-root users.

It turns out that the distribution CDs included in the latest
book (Slackware 3.2) did not include adduser!  So, this is why I cannot find it!

I spoke directly with the author of the book regarding the missing 'adduser' file.  He specifically said he left it out of
the CDROM because he preferred useradd.  He told me that the
latest update package from the web (I don't remember the
update number) corrected this problem along with other problems.

I was curious of you do a grep on the 'ls_lr' file in the
root dir of your CD if the adduser file shows up.  It does
not on my CD...

Did you install an update package?

Here's what I got:

I have the Walnut Creek Slacware 3.2 package.

My CDROMs came from the book titled:Linux Configuration & Installation by Patrick Volkerding.  Title on the two CDs is "Linux Configuration and Installation, 2E", with three authors of the book listed below the title.  ISBN is 1-55828-492-3, (C) 1997 Patrick Volkerding.
