Hi Peter!

yup, the script thinks the user and group already exist:

+ '[' 0 -gt 0 ']'
+ chroot . /bin/bash
groupadd: group sshd exists
useradd: user sshd exists
+ cat
+ exit 0

even though they are not in the passwd and group files:

there are sshd user and group in my nis tables, but i have files before nis in
the /etc/nsswitch.conf file:

passwd: files nis
shadow: files nis
group: files nis

could that still be the problem?
