I can imagine that this must get asked all the time,
yet I wasn't able to find anything useful on Google or
How do I create a new user account? I know that it
probably has to exist as a Windows user first. So I
created a new Windows user. But then what? How do I
get cygwin to make a /home/newuser dir and understand
that the user exists (in /etc/passwd etc.) so I can do
"su - newuser" etc. ?
