Is this "admin" user the emergency user? Because I couldn't log in,
and I tried to create a new manager with inituser, and it worked, and
there is no admin user in my acl_users...

Still can't log in with admin, maybe I mistyped the password twice... :-)

Me too. And in fact the linux install installs runzope.bat. Still
pretty pointless.

Oh, right. No, I *want* runzope.bat, but yeah, just runzope works fine
too, because the shell will look for exe, bat and com files when you
do that. :-) If you delete the runzope file, and then do the same, you
see it expands to "runzope.bat".

It should probably print the current directory. That's pointless on
UNIX, because then you know what the current directory is, but when
clicking on an icon, you don't.

No, it works fine (except for the weirdness about the admin creation.
Maybe I'll try again and make sure I donn't mistype this time.)
