I assume you mean using system functions ect, right?
I suggest using perl for this.

Perl? Why? I thought you could do this with PHP as well? Use the 'exec' function to call linux commands with some variables from PHP.
You can make an account with a random password, send a mail to the new user by PHP with this password and instructions how to change it, etc... (or something like this)
Lucien, just look at some old postings: I don't know how they did it exactly, but I've seen it before
