Were that it were so easy.  I was never prompted to create a "WikiSysop" 
user.  I was prompted to create a wikiuser for the DB (MySQL if it makes a 
difference), but never WikiSysop.

If I enter WikiSysop, and try to email the password to me (or wherever), I get:

Login error:
Error sending mail: There is no e-mail address recorded for user "WikiSysop".
