Take a gander at `man adduser`.

To find your network settings (such as IP address) you can issue a `ifconfig -a` to see all interfaces and settings. If you know the interface name you can just issue a `ifconfig xl0` where xl0 is the first 3Com NIC in a system. Your network devices will most likely be different but `ifconfig -a` will list all network devices and their current configuration.
