I finally got DNN3 working after fixing my Sql Server setup. DNN3 installed without error and I'm getting to the home page. Do I have modify the 'admin' and 'superuser (host) section in the DotNetNuke.install template before trying to login? Do I have to
register this accounts first? I tried just logging without modifying the template and I can't get in to get to the Admin tab to modify either account. If I try to register the register screen kicks me out when I'm selecting the country. If I need to modify
the template first, please give explicit instructions as I'm not very knowledgeable with this script code. Also, indicate if I also need to register the accounts.

DKilgore - Great to see you have it working -
Do I have modify the 'admin' and 'superuser (host) section in the DotNetNuke.install template before trying to login?
No - simply log in as host/host - You will see a superuser account on top right hand side - Click that and change your password immediately - That is done by changing details just down the page that says - Change Password - In host settings you need to
put in your existing password - (host on new installs) then your new password, twice underneath and clicked the Update Password link. Essentiallly what that's doing is changing the password only and not part of the top section which is adding/modifiying your
Then, under Admin/User Accounts, click on the admin user and repeat, but in this instance, it it does not ask you for your previous password, so you can just hit the update password link.
Hope this helps.
edit// I forgot to answer the question about registration. What you need to do when you select the country is to wait until the page reappears. The then you can continue on with your registration.
Modifying the templates is not normally done through the XML file, unless you are experienced. There is a much easier way to do this.
Created pages and the add the images and the modules that you want to have first. This would be similar to a master file. The next step is to click of the host/portals/export template feature, whereby you can put in a brief description and the name, and
it will be saved in the_default directory, where you can then apply it to child portals or keep it there is a master file, should you wish to start again. Does this make sense. The whole idea of DotNetNuke is to be a simple, easier to follow the process and
want to pick up a couple of these small tips. You will be on your way.
