debian:~# useradd -g machines -d /dev/null -c "Intern 3 Comp" -s /bin/false intern3comp$
debian:~# passwd -l intern3comp$
debian:~# smbpasswd -a -m intern3comp
debian:~# useradd -g machines -d /dev/null -c "Intern 3 Comp" -s /bin/false
useradd - Adds User
-g Group (Primary)
-d "Home Directory"
passwd -l intern3comp$
-l "Login name"
smbpasswd -a -m intern3comp
unsure what the samba attributes mean. the -m might be the login name
