	After doing the modfications on login.conf, run:

	# cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf

	Define the class for each user in passwd, using vipw. The class is
the 5th field, in this example the class was defined as "limiteduser":

zoruega:$1$50258.20$DdcXReDR/lhZI/1CjjEEd0:102:201:limiteduser:0:0:Zoruega Linfo,,,,X:/nonexistent:/bin/sh

	It is available after next login for that user.
