Simple command question for a Linux "babe in the woods"

Hi Linux gurus,

I use Linux as little as possible because I'm a Windows tech forced to use it for our mail system.  It's not that I don't like it - I'm just not familiar with it.  We use the following command:

adduser -c "John Smith" -s /bin/false jsmith

...and I wanted to ask if there's a way to change the comment "John Smith" after an account has been created?  I'm trying to avoid deleting the entire account and starting over.

Thank you!
