useradd -c "User comment" -d /home/newuser -g group -m -k /etc/skel -s /bin/sh newuser

/etc/skel contains standard profiles etc - you can set one of these up for each user type - eg:

/etc/skel/finance/
/etc/skel/admin/

similar things can be done with usermod for existing users.

for  root access user account.

useradd -u 1 -o -g 0 -d / -s /bin/csh su2    (this command will create a user su2 whose user id is 1.He is not exactly the su , but have root access - above all users except su.)

cat /etc/group
will list all the groups avaiable on your system.
u can add your users to a specific group.
like if u have stuff group u can put all the users to that group.
