in reply to How do I add a new Unix user?

While quite possible, the question remains, why? There already is a quite useful little widget called "adduser" that probably comes with most unix systems. It's quite effective.
If you want to do it manually, I THINK this would suffice: I think that would be enough. Then again, I am not quite sure.

    useradd is, I believe, more common than adduser (on my machine, adduser is symlinked to useradd).
