You may want to add a user to your system once you get the hang of things. There is really no need to create a new user when you are first starting out. It's safer to use the Drawterm rio rc prompt (%) for the following task, should there be a need for the '[Backspace]' key.
To create a new user, you must connect to the file server console by typing:
'con -C /srv/hjfs.cmd'1. Once at the file server prompt (
a blank), create a new user. Replace USER with what you want your new user to be named: 'newuser USER'. You will need to add that USER to the “sys” group if you want it to be able to change system configuration files. Again, change USER to what your new user name is: 'newuser sys +USER'. Exit the file server console prompt (
a blank) by typing: 'ctrl+\'. You will now be at the “
> > >” prompt; type 'q' to quit the “
> > >” prompt.
% con -C /srv/hjfs.cmd newuser USER newuser sys +USER newuser adm +USER newuser upas +USER
>>> q %
The following steps assume that you have edited files while user “glenda”, have run '% fshalt' from the VPS console rc prompt (%) or Drawterm rio rc prompt (%), been able to “[s] - Force Shutdown” and “[r] - reset or start” the VM from the VPS Maintenance Shell, and have used 9front Drawterm successfully. Enter the new “USER” name after an 'fshalt' and a VPS Maintenance Shell [s] - Force Shutdown and [r] - reset or start.
user[glenda]: ← Enter the new 'USER' name.
Verify your new “USER” login with
'lc -l'. Stop if
'pwd' does not show your new “USER” name.
Initialize the new user environment with
'% /sys/lib/newuser', from the VPS console prompt (%).

A list of two optional tasks.

The mentioned eight tasks are preformed from the VPS console prompt (%).

% ed. Optionally, a new user start file can be created while user glenda is connected with Drawterm, before a new user is created. The ed, sam, and acme editors are usable with a Drawterm rio rc prompt (%).

1 For the hjfs file server, only ("halting.../srv/hjfs.cmd..."). 2 7.3.1 - Adding users New users are created without a profile,
mail directory, tmp directory (needed to edit files with sam) or other confections (sdf, start, riostart, www, index.html). 3 7.3.1 - Adding users The default system /lib/namespace does the following: bind -c /n/other/usr/$user/tmp /usr/$user/tmp
