Re: how to create a new user

OK, thanks for pointing that out.  Although I think that other then the
amount of time required to fetch a given user password entry, there's no
difference between `mkpasswd -u username` and `mkpasswd -d | grep username`.
(With exception of the comma).

I think that sshd is setup correctly - I am able to ssh into the windows
machine (running cygwin/sshd) with another account.  The problem is that
billy can't log in using password authentication.

PasswordAuthentication is set to 'yes'.
