You'll notice that the createusers script uses /bin/false by default, but
gives you the option to change that....  It makes sense that you can't ssh
in to your box if it's set to /bin/false....you can't use the terminal if
you have no environment to use...such as bash.  I created users both ways
for testing...some with /bin/false and some with /bin/bash   The /bin/bash
folks can ssh just fine...the others cannot.  smbldap-useradd -m -a
username  creates users with /bin/bash as the shell by default....maybe we
should change the script to default on /bin/bash?
