Data Help adding user login in Unix Sco

We have made numerous requests to our system administrator to add new employees at login screen ( passwords not required ) to no avail.

I can login into root but not sure how to proceed from there.

We have a 10 yr. old version of SCO

Can anyone help?

I know very few unix commands okay I'll admit I am a unix idiot needing a link to step by step commands
