Basically, create a user the same way as any other. The username
should be the name of the machine with a $ appended. Samedit will
create the special initial password (the machine name in lower case
Unicode), which is changed by the machine as soon as it joins the
What may also work is creating the Unix account and entering root and
root's password in the dialog; I haven't tried this with TNG myself
