How did you `execute' it?
It looks like you entered something like

sh adduser

on the command line. This won't work, since adduser is *not* a
shell script but a perl script. At least this is what ``file
/usr/sbin/adduser'' says. So just enter

adduser

on the command line and the perl interpreter will be called
automatically by the kernel.

Make sure you *have* perl installed on your system. The interpreter
lives in /usr/bin/perl. To find out enter `which perl'.

If this does not help, feel free to ask again.

Wolfgang
