Hello all:

Looks like a good place to get some answers.

I just installed the latest version of mySQL on my Windows 2000 server for the first time and it is working fine.

I know how to set the 'root' password and know how to create a database.

My question is:

How do I create a normal user account since I don't want to share my 'root' account?

I tried this:

c:\mysql\bin:> mysqladmin -u user password "password here"

What am I doing wrong?
