357If you plan on giving other people access to your installation

363<p>
364To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:

374To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
375its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.

440If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
441Gentoo installation (perhaps because those users are going to help you
442install Gentoo, or even do it for you), you need to create a user
443account for them and perhaps even provide them with your root password
444(<e>only</e> do that <e>if</e> you <b>fully trust</b> that user).
445</p>
