Only a superuser (root and all user with su-permissions) can create an account. You should have in your /sbin dir a programm called adduser. Try this.

Use what command to see if I have su-permission?
It seem that my unix doesn't have 'adduser' in /sbin
I have using OSF/1

Thanks.

When I typed 'adduser', it reply:
su to root first

What that means?

This means that you actually are no super user. Use su enter the password for root and try adduser again.
