<literal>Full name</literal> - The user's full name. This can contain spaces and is used as a description for the user account.
<literal>Uid</literal> - User <acronym>ID</acronym>. Typically, this is left blank so the system will assign a value.
<literal>Login group</literal> - The user's group. Typically this is left blank to accept the default.
<literal>Invite <replaceable>user</replaceable> into other groups?</literal> - Additional groups to which the user will be added as a member. If the user needs administrative access, type <literal>wheel</literal> here.
