This  is great.  I just tried pdbedit and it works perfectly.
Thanks for the help.
This will greatly reduce errors.

Next question.  Can I import the information from my /etc/passwd file so 
I don't have to manually type information for 100 people?
I did read the man pages but it is a bit confusing.

Thanks again.
