    log in as root, then go to....preferences maybe and there's an option called User Accounts, go there and you can create more account. If it's not under preferences look under the other menus for it.

    Integer,
    you should be able to save your desktop settings as your normal user (in fact every different user should be able to save their own settings [you could, of course, have many people using your machine]).

    If this still doesn't happen, I suggest another (new) post.

    have fun

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
