Ok, quick question.  After getting everything running and what not on my
new rc4_pre2 machine, i'm starting to customize everything to my liking.
I'd like to be able to create my own non-root account (for obvious
reasons) however i'm getting an error with adduser like so "PAM
authentication failed".  This comes after typing in the password for my
new account i'm trying to create.  Surely there must be some PAM setting
which is wrong by default or something, since you should be able to create
a new account without too much fuss.  Or perhaps there is some new tool
for creating new accounts i don't know about, as i'm still acclimating to
my new gentoo environs.  Could anyone shine some light on this problem?


thanks,


dave
