Adding a user from a local login or a remote session SHOULD be identical.

'su' by itself doesn't load root's .bash_profile.  You'll need to either

o   specify the full path to /usr/sbin/useradd or /usr/sbin/adduser

I've never heard of these rites...is this something to do with the
Erisian movement?  Or is it a BOFH thing?  =)
