How do I set up usernames for eight different users on my PC?

How do I manage the netusers login time access and administer the
restrictions on user login times to between say 0530-2100 every day?

How do I set switches to give each onf them 15 min, 10 min, and 5 min
warnings before logging them off?

A helpful person from this newsgroup/forum gave me the
following instructions but I still don't understand fully how to set this up
permanently for each of the 8 users of my PC.

QUOTE:

At the command prompt;

net user Nicky
-timesM,0530-2100;T,0530-2100;W,0530-2100;Th,0530-2100;F,0530-2359;Sa,0530-2
359;Su,0530-2100

Should be one long line, not cut up like it is here.

Edit Nicky to your kids login and edit the times it kicks them off every
evening.
IIRC there's options to give them warnings at 15 or 10 minute intervals
before it
kicks 'em off but don't recall the switches at the moment.

If ya like, run it in a batch file.

END QUOTE.

Can anyone give me a really clear set of destructions of how to set this up?

*blink* I don't think it can get much clearer.

On one line, without any line breaks (i.e., don't press the ENTER
key), type in:

net user Nicky -timesM,0530-2100;T,0530-2100;W etc.

That's set up a user named Nicky, that has as valid times Monday
5:30 to 21:00 (24 hour clock), Tuesday 5:30 to 21:00 (hint: For PMs, add 12
to the time to get 24 hour), etc.

What else can we say?

I would like to understand as well as make it happen.
If I type in those commands at the dos prompt, how will they effect the next
login session after the computer has been switched off. I thought they would
be lost after shutdown. Is the command "net user Nicky ..." written to a
file? Can you please explain?

Can you also help me with the switches for shutdown warnings at 15, 10 and 5
minutes before the axe drops?

Can I set up users to only have say 2 hours access to the computer in any 24
hour period?

I also found an internet site which explained that a great risk of
instability accompanies setting up and using multiple users on one pc in Win
98. As I've had heaps trouble so far, I'm concerned.

It's one time - it sets the time frames up within the user account.

Nope - can't do that with a stand alone machine as far as I know.
You can set ONE alert if you were in a domain - which is quite a bit more
than what you really want!

Best thing is to set up a timer for them ...

Only if you set start and stop at 2 hours difference.

XP <> 98. XP is designed from the get to support multiple user
accounts.

Thanks. I'll try for XP on a better computer at my next upgrade.
