Someone else has already posted an example of a form to collect the data
and pass it to a script called adduser.php. In adduser.php you could try
the exec() function to execute the adduser/useradd command, something

  exec("useradd -u $uid -g $gid -d $home_dir -s $shell -c 'comments' $user");

Hope this helps,
