Maybe I read this wrong but wasn't Matt saying that the usermod command 
wasn't working properly?  So new users with useradd work fine, users created 
with the script don't because they are set to /bin/false, but users modified 
with usermod are changed from /bin/false to /bin/bash and still don't work.
