Sent this last night, hasn't appeared. I think I may have had rtf format
The last remaining task in changin from Mandrake 6 to a new server with
RH7.2 is to transfer the users.
I have a system for transferring the users using a file and Webmin's bulk
adduser routine, which I have used in the past. However this time I need to
transfer the passwords as well, once I have created the users can I simply
copy over the shadow password file, or should I do it first, or won't that
work at all.
Any advice appreciated,
