Under F9, I want to create an account such that the user will be

passwd command didn't look like it had anything useful.
as root at the CLI:
# chage -d 01/01/1970 <someUser>
The user will be prompted to change his password next login.
Yeah, that works too. Rats! Why couldn't I remember that one! Yet
another senior moment at work!
hmmm ... i interpreted the OP's question as asking how to force a new
user to set a password on first login, but *also* to put a time limit
on how long that person had to log in before the account was locked.
as in, if a new user is too lazy to log in to a new account, then
after a week of complete non-use, it locks automatically. as long
as the user gets to it before then, they have to set a new password,
after which they're good to go.
was this addressed?
