    Ok, I'll give you that. Just a suggestion, but why don't you also include some of the other things that you can do with the net user prompt? Basically right now you are just copying other 'ibles that were published awhile ago... But it would be a very useful 'ible for some people if you showed how to stop a user from being able to change their own password, or restrict log on times on any Windows OS (not just the ones that have the parental controls), etc.
