SuSE 9.1 probably has a strange useradd command

[18:35] <brudders> I am running suse 9.1 as host
[18:35] <brudders> just using command
[18:36] <brudders> useradd -s /bin/bash -g lfs -m -k /dev/null lfs
[18:36] <brudders> and get error message
[18:36] <brudders> useradd: Copying of skel directory failed
[18:36] <brudders> can anyone point me in the right direction
[18:36] <patrakov> drop "-k /dev/null"
[18:36] <patrakov> and then make sure that the /home/lfs directory is empty

Can anyone confirm or disprove this and adjust the instructions in the book
accordingly if necessary?
