well create a new account and then you can use that one. As for how -- there are probably 2 ways. Thru gnome, or at the command line.
Either way, you need to do this while logged in as root.
In the command prompt box, you can do this (I think, this is on a Mandrake 9 install, so ..... with age creates change in minor ways). here is a snippet of what the command parameters are :
So to create a user beer, with password sixpack, and group schotty (since I have that one created already) the command would be :
[root@wildturkey schotty]# useradd
usage: useradd[-u uid [-o]] [-g group] [-G group,...]
[-d home] [-s shell] [-c comment] [-m [-k template]]
[-f inactive] [-e expire ] [-p passwd] [-M] [-n] [-r] name
useradd-D [-g group] [-b base] [-s shell]
[-f inactive] [-e expire ]
useradd -g schotty beer
(type in sixpack)
I am not sure exactly how to do it via the CLI all in one fell swoop. The password parameter didnt work, but I am sure someone can correct my error(s).
Other than that it works. I just tested it again for ya, and all went well.
