When I log in (telnet) with a newly created user, I get garbage on my screen.

The adduser in FREESCO 0.2.7 is actually meant to allow new users to use dialin services. In order to change that you need to edit /etc/passwd

find the line that has the username that you want to have a normal login and go the the end of the line and change "psh" to "sh". Then save and exit.

To make the change permanent (/etc/passwd is in RAM disk), copy /etc/passwd to the "mirror" passwd file on the harddisk/floppy which is "/mnt/router/etc/passwd"

cp /etc/passwd /mnt/router/etc/passwd
