Ummm. Do you have a /etc/adduser file? Maybe this file is corrupt, try moving it and then run adduser again.
If I remember correctly the first run thru of adduser stores some settings on how root likes to add users, such as name limitations/expressions. Someone might have added an user and changed the "internal" settings or something. Also try adding a user thru the sysinstall interface. -Alastair _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
