Adding new users

    I've searched through the lfs hints and faq and have read the man
useradd; man passwd and man groupadd.
    I've created etc/skel with apropriate files.
I want to add a user, add its password and add its new group.  Am I on
the right track with the following command:

useradd -m<newuser> -n<newuser> -p<newuser password> -u<newuser>

Would this do what I hope it would do?
  Thanks for any comments.
