Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating your own workflows with Visio, part of SharePoint 2010 Essential Training.
If you have Microsoft Visio 2010 Premium Edition, you will find there is another…thing you can do with workflow in SharePoint.…In fact, in the flowchart section, you actually have a type of Visio diagram…you can create which is a Microsoft SharePoint workflow and this is not just for looking at it.…It's actually useful for creating it.…If I create that kind of drawing, I will find the options available to me are…the Workflow Actions and Workflow Conditions, the same things I could get in…SharePoint Designer.…

If you don't have that, you need to first add your new users as local accounts on the Windows box you installed SharePoint on. Only then will you be able to give them permission on a SharePoint site.
