You need to login as "root" or su as root, to do the job

1.use command line command "useradd" command to add user:
NAME
     useradd - administer a new user login on the system

SYNOPSIS
     useradd  [ -c comment ]   [  -d dir  ]   [  -e expire  ]   [
     -f inactive ]  [ -g group ]  [ -G group  [ , group ...  ]  ]
     [ -m  [ -k skel_dir ]  ]  [ -u uid  [ -o ]  ]  [ -s shell  ]
     login

     useradd -D  [ -b base_dir ]  [ -e expire ]  [ -f inactive  ]
     [ -g group ]

  do a "man useradd" to findout more details.

2. GUI tool:"admintool"

   type: admintool & <enter>
   to bring up the admintool, default is going to the user manger window,
   click on menu bar Edit, choose add, then fill up the information about the new user.
   then ok, and click on [FILE], exit to exit from the admintool.

a common problem with ppl creating users from the command line at first is that they do not create the user's home directory.  this is a pet peeve of mine.  using the -m flag will create the directory.

the -s can set your shell to something more friendly, like bash
ex.

# useradd -d /export/home/marc -m -s /usr/local/bin/bash marc

then dont forget to set the password for the account

# passwd marc
