    56== 1 Creating additional user accounts ==
     7
    68GENI-in-a-Box creates an account for user 'gibuser' (your username on GENI-in-a-Box) on the virtual machines created for your slice.  You can add additional accounts on these virtual machines; the following steps show how you can add an account for user 'chris':
    79     1. Create a public-private key-pair for Chris using the command {{{ssh-keygen -t rsa}}}.  The public key created ({{{chris.pub}}}) must be moved to the directory {{{~/.gcf}}} and the private key to {{{~/.ssh}}}.  In the example below we used an empty passphrase i.e. hit <return> on the prompt for a passphrase.

    5456== 3. Suspending and resuming your GENI-in-a-Box session  ==
     57
    5558You can suspend your GENI-in-a-Box session by ''hibernating'' your GENI-in-a-Box virtual machine.   This will save the state of the virtual machine on disk and will allow you to resume your work the next time you start up !VirtualBox.
    5659  * To hibernate a virtual machine running Fedora, click on the logged-in user's name on the top right of the GENI-in-a-Box screen and select {{{shutdown}}} from the drop-down menu.  You will now be presented with a number of {{{shutdown}}} options including {{{hibernate}}}.  Click on {{{hibernate}}}.
