Create a new user via the Terminal
Authored by: zacht on Jun 05, '03 09:58:08PM
I think the users you list there are mostly (all?) added by Fink, or at least by certain packages that Fink installs. I tried googling for a page with a nice clear explanation of this but couldn't find one in under five minutes.

One thing I found was at http://homepage.mac.com/pinus/fink.html. This is a page with a lot of Japanese (I think) characters, but about a third of the way down the page is a transcript of a session of installing "The GIMP" with Fink, and it mentions pretty much the same list of users.
