It has been decided that we should disable the old usernames and passwords and recreate more upto date ones on our Linux boxes.  How do I go about doing this?

"It depends", different distros handle user management in different ways.

Have a look around on your system for programs along the lines of:

adduser
useradd
deluser
etc

Then read their man pages. You will probably find them in a system binary directory, so create a root login shell with "su -" first.
