Thanks Steve,
I had forgotten about man. I now remember from the Allegro graphic 
library. I suppose my SCO Unix book from
1994 is a little out of date :-)
I tried man, but it teold me 'no entry for adduser in the manual'. So, I 
guess it has to do it's weekly job. It's probably a good thing as I 
really should get some zzz for these tired old eyeballs. :-)
All the machines here run 24/7 anyway so they can obtain their virus 
protection updates and do their scanning.

Night all ;-)
