Linux Scripts--creating new users and passwords?

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 816AAVsXUO

I'm new to linux servers and having a difficult time figuring out what commands to use.

I'm trying to create a script that will go to a text document with a list of users and create a new user for each member on the list. I want a password to be set for them, and let them know that they need to change it on their next login.

Generally this is done by clicking > System > Users ...and you add new users, their passwords, and privileges. If you have used Windows - it is the same as like Control Panel > Users ... to add new users and their privileges.
