Create Linux user


Add OS user:

useradd sam

And set its password (you will be prompted for it in the command line):

passwd sam

You may want to change user's home directory since it is used by some services like FTP or Samba. To do that open file /etc/passwd and find your new user's line. The first parameter of each line is user's name. The path to the home directory is second to last.
