User control panel?
Authored by: allenhuffman on Dec 11, '01 01:16:44AM

The instructions for MySQL create the user account through the GUI, too.

So what makes a user account "GUI aware" versus "*nix aware"? How does one create true Unix accounts that the GUI won't see?

My Unix background is with Solaris/SunOS but I'm afraid to touch too many files since I don't know how much X does and does not support at the OS level ;-)
