A basic question for anyone out there.

When I tried to use the Adduser command it created the user like it's suppose too.  I also used the -d for home directory for that user and it seemed to work (the directory is there).  However when I log in as that user it logs me in from the root directory and not under his home directory?

What did I do wrong or how can I correct that problem?

I would like the user to be able to log into his home directory first.

The home directory that Unix should be using is the 6th field of the /etc/passwd file.  What is in this field for this user in /etc/passwd?  If it is not correct, make a backup copy of the file (to be safe) and then edit the file to correct this field for this user.  If the /etc/passwd file is correct, we can go from there.
