" linuxconf " command is deprecated since 2001 so it won't work on your terminal. But previously it is in use as a GUI interface using " linuxconf & ".

useradd -c "comments/info about user" -s /bin/ksh -d /home/username -u <give the unique user id> -g <primary group> -G <secondary groups> username.

useradd -c "linux user" -s /bin/ksh/sh/bash/csh -d /home/linux -u 12344 -g linux -G admin linux.
