. Createusers takes a plain text comma separated
containing username, password in plain text, real name and user group.

each student... adding everyone through the command line or
linuxconf would be a real pain....
That's *exactly* the problem createusers is designed to solve. Do try it
and let the list know if it worked. Please let me know you received this
