I've just installed linux for the first time and after adding a new user with adduser command (and set a password) I am unable to log in with that user and password. I can display the user info with # finger <username>. but cannot login with that user and password. I can login with the root user just fine. I can modify the user.
I reckon I just need to set something but I don't know what - or I'm just doing something really dumb.
Any help would be greatly appreciated :o
