For information about managing user accounts, groups, and shells, see the Managing User Accounts chapter of the Neutrino User's Guide.

To change your icon:

  2. Select a new icon from the list. The default icon and a selection of others are located in /usr/share/faces.
  3. Click Open.

If you have root priviledges, you can also create, edit, and delete users, groups, and shells:

  1. Click Advanced.
  2. If you are not a root-priviledged user, enter the root password.
  3. Select the Users, Groups, or Shells tab.
  4. Click the New, Edit, or Remove buttons.

Note: This utility needs to have the setuid ("set user ID") bit set in its permissions. If you use mkefs, mketfs, or mkifs on a Windows host to include this utility in an image, use the perms attribute to specify its permissions explicitly, and the uid and gid attributes to set the ownership correctly.
