    Which version of Unix? There are different methods in different
    versions (and even in the aame version).

    Read the man pages for adduser, useradd and vipw.

    It depends. Shall we each answer for our favorite OS's, or would you
    like to tell us what version of Unix you want answers for?

    Man pages passwd(1m), passwd(4), vipw(8 or 1m) and so on are good
    starting points. If you want to do it with a GUI nearly all
    vendors offer one and each vendor has a different one.
