    I am using CentOS64bit and when i login with root using putty and want to add a new user, it just goes to the next line and doesn't tell me to set password for the user. It doesn't even tell me if user is added or not.

    I don't know what is wrong here. When i try to add the same user then it says user already exists, but then it neve told me it added the user or ask me for password.

    What is going on?

    You can check /etc/passwd to see if the user was created. To set a password, just run
    passwd [I]username[/I]
