[Zope] Debian install not clear

hi there,

when installing zope using the debian apt system there is one point which 
should be made clearer and which seems to cause lots of problems.

when the debian install script runs it prompts to create a user.  it should 
be made clear that this is the emergency user and this user can only be used 
to create users.  i.e. after logging in as this user the first thing someone 
should normally do is to create a user account with management rights.  this 
new user can then create objects etc.

in the zope documentation it repeatedly mentions the creation of an admin 
user during the installation routine - debian does NOT create this user but 
instead creates the emergency user.
