Yeah, from the HowTo :
Now enter a user name and password for a Domain Admin (Who must be root
until a pre-release bug is fixed) and press 'OK'.

But maybe you are right, I don't actually say "Create a root account", I'll
have a go at it if I get a chance.

No, thats got to be somethig wrong ! I've never waited that long and my
test server was a P166 !

No, generally speaking once the domain is working correctly, you'll only
need a local passwd for administrator for when something goes badley wrong.
Othe local passwds and a pain.

Thanks for your input. Usefull.
