In order to run newuser/newuserv, the following files must exist. They
are installed as part of the GNO base distribution, but you may have to
install them manually if you received newuser/newuserv as a standalone
A directory. All user home directories will be created in this
A text file containing the next UID that newuser/newuserv
should assign.
A directory. All plain files in this directory will be copied
into a user's $HOME directory, when $HOME is created. It is normal
to have a skelton glogin and gshrc in here.
