Organization: Hong Kong Star Internet Ltd.
I have problem in add users to linux. For example, I add the following line
to /etc/passwd :

/home/newuser and set it's group attribute.

comes out :
dl_boot: Open /dev/zero failed!
The ONLY get around is to set User ID and user group no. to 0:0 (root),
but I don't want every other uses to be root !
Anyone has similar experiences ? And how to solve ?

Thanks in advance.
