Hi Jane,

could you try:
http://people.redhat.com/pvrabec/rpms/shadow-utils-4.1.1-2.src.rpm

I have changed man page to:
...
-m, --create-home
    The user´s home directory will be created if it does not exist. The
    default is to create the directory and to copy files from /etc/skel into
    it. This behavior is set by CREATE_HOME directive in /etc/login.defs by
    Red Hat.

-k, --skel SKEL_DIR
    The files contained in SKEL_DIR will be copied to the home directory
    if the -k option is used, otherwise the files contained in /etc/skel
    will be used instead. Any directories contained in SKEL_DIR or /etc/skel
    will be created in the user´s home directory as well.
...

-k doesn't require -m anymore, if it's OK for you, I'll commit it.
