Something more: I tried log in as root and it worked so I created username and password using command "useradd" and now I can log in but prompt gives me back only:No directory /home... [by lesharc]

Hopefully I'm in the correct forum for this one...
I just had a pretty simple question about SSH.
When I ssh to a server normally I do "ssh user@ip_address". I noticed once by accident I forgot to enter the username
when I was entering the command and it still attempted to connect and still offered me a "Password" Prompt.
When I create a user with useradd command in centos 5, the home directory is created and its /etc/skel files are copied to that directory but when i give useradd with -doption to some different path to home directory it does not create the skeloton files, like .bachrc, .bash_history etc.
If someone can give a hint so I can resolve this problem.
When I click a user name on the login screen, the other ones disappear but the password prompt never shows up. It stays this way for a few seconds, then comes back to the original state with the list of users.
I have a Fedora 19 box with a 26TB RAID set mounted as my home directory
[root@localhost ~]# mount|grep home
/dev/md0 on /home type xfs (rw,relatime,seclabel,attr2,inode64,logbsize=128k,sunit=256,swidth=3584,noquota)
I have been able to add/modify user accounts using VNC + system-config-users...
I'm using ubuntu on virtualbox. I'm trying to learn terminal commands. My problem is: I cannot switch to a different user (that i created using useradd). I can only switch from my user account to root and vice versa.
When I try to type
su bob, it would prompt for a password, then I enter the password. After that it would just show a new line with "S" displayed at the start.
