Hi Jeffrey

Thanks a lot !!!  I am now using htpasswd and it works just fine, though I am
still curious about the correct usage of crypt.  Now, one last question, how do
I remove a newsgroup.  Do I edit the active file directly or is there a command
like ctlinnd for removing newsgroups?

This is definitely not the way to make a password file for news.  The
easiest way is to use the "htpasswd" program from Apache if you have that

You want a file in the same layout as /etc/passwd except with just the
first two fields.
