1591 <p>Working as root on a Unix/Linux system is <e>dangerous</e> and
1592 should be avoided as much as possible. Therefor it is <e>strongly</e>
1593 recommended to add a user for day-to-day use.</p>
1594 <pre caption = "Adding a user">
1595# <i>useradd your_user -m -g users,wheel,audio -s /bin/bash</i>
1596# <i>passwd your_user</i></pre>
1597 <p>Ofcourse substitute <c>your_user</c> with your username.</p>
1598 <p>Whenever you need to perform some task that only root can handle,
1599 use <c>su -</c> to change your privileges to root-privileges, or take
1600 a look at the <c>sudo</c> package.</p>
