How can I use "pw" command to

1. create an account
2. specifiy a password for that account

so that next time I can login with this account?
(I need an example cause I've played with it and I was unsuccessful)

    it's been a while since I've worked with a BSD, but I would assume the commands to create a user named garwain and set a password would be

    adduser garwain
    passwd garwain

    For more options check out the manual pages for adduser.

    PS, you will have to do this under the root account.
