(sysop, init.bcm, only linux)
Syntax: ADDLINUXSYSTEMUSER [ 0 | 1 ]
(Default: 0)

This sysop command "addlinuxsystemuser" can be set in init.bcm to value 0
(=deactivated) or 1 (=activated).

If it is set to 1, a user can define his user password for the mailbox
linux system with ALTER LINUXPW. OpenBCM adds this password to the linux
system files /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. As loginshell "/bin/false" is used.
Deleting a user from the linux system is not possible at the moment from
inside OpenBCM, therefore the sysop must do this plain under the system if
this is desired.

The function "addlinuxsystemuser" is useful for those BBS system who wants
to add some TCP/IP features for their users (e.g. for TCP/IP mail accounts)
and whose sysops don't want to install either any other special packet radio
TCP/IP software or add TCP/IP linux system users manually.

Because the usershell is set to /bin/false, it's save that the users get
access to the system but don't get a real shell account.
