Hi everyone,
I'm building a new FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE system, and I need to move a
ton of users from the old FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE system.

I was hoping it would be as easy as copying the master.passwd, passwd,
and group files to the new box and rebooting, but No. It's not.

Is there a way to "migrate" users from the old box to the new one?
I don't care so much about migrating all their home directory contents
or mail, I just want a method to add all the old users & passwords and
groups to the new machine, and create the user directories in a batch
