I'm slowly getting used to how to enter commands and I've printed out 
some of the man pages. I did encounter a problem and I'm not sure how to 
correct it. I logged in as root and tried to useradd, but it gives me 

useradd: can't obtain pw_lock: File exists

I tried rebooting,logging back in as root and tried again with the same 
result. Your guidance would be greatly appreciated. So far, this seems 
to be the only problem I'm having so far.
I get the same warning/error from userdel.

I'm even somewhat used to the editor vi . Looks a little different than 
the one I remember, but I'm getting the hang of it :-)

Thanks again
