Guys,

I have a little problem...my useradd tool has disappeared. I've looked through all of the bin directories, and tried 'locate' on every concievable combination of user and add. I don't know what to do. I think it may have to do with me having me having a hard time installing and uninstalling a certain security software suite. I hope someone has seen something like this.

Well, I haven't seen anything like this before, but, you could just remove the package that contains the useradd script, and re-install it. The process for this depends on which distribution you are running. If it's a redhat-based system, then just remove the rpm and re-install it. If it's a debian-based system, just apt-get remove and apt-get install.
