hi, i want to make user accounts with admin rights (dont tell me to go read some linux documentation plz just tell me). there isnt a network or anything just a stand-alone PC.

Also is there some 'list' on the internet which lists all the commands (to be used in terminal.console mode) of Red Hat linux, such as 'adduser' and such

I know you'll hate me for this, but here's a link that might help

The Linux SysAdmin's Guide has a section 'Creating a user'.

The book is pretty much distro-independent, so it won't mention whatever pretty GUI tools RedHat supplies. However, it will give you a better feel for the underlying "theory" and mechanics of user admin.

Feel free to ignore this post though, since you didn't want this sort of advice...

I guess the question then is, have you done any reading yet? Simple tasks like this are easily googled. I'm not suggesting you stop asking questions here on Javaranch. However, I would suggest that comments like these be left in your head. When you say things like this, it makes people want to ignore your post and not answer you at all.
