This sounds like you're using the 1.0 kernel and binaries.  Please look
into using a more current snapshot from one of the following places:

Actually, the keyboard driver is wedged.  If the machine were configured
for it, you could log in from elsewhere.  If you want to stick with 1.0,
then the suggestion to use dt is a good one.

/dev/sdXb where X is the unit number of the root drive (watch the boot
process to find the drive <-> unit mapping, basically, unit N is the Nth
disk in SCSI ID order).

"man adduser" when you install the man pages.  There is not a provided
script/program for it, although there are some "out there."
