  I don't know whether you need to know the users

  working right now or have account in your system.

  try command "w" or "who" or "finger" to get users

  in working stauts, if you use "cat /etc/passwd",

  you can get all the accounts in your system, but

  some are system accounts and can not be used to

  login , some are user accounts used to login, in

  sco openserver, user id >= 200 is normal user,

  user id equal to 0 is root user, others are system

  accounts. I hope it will do you a favour.
