I am building a new system & intend to use XP Professional 64-Bit version until Win 7 is available with first service pack.

Can I set up during install to have one & only one user account which is an administrator?

Documents & Settings always seems to include All Users & Default User. Install seems to automically create a non-administrator user.

There are three system folders for XP that exist on any installation: All Users, Default User and Administrator, if the account has been logged into.
By default XP will create a user account with a name you choose and set it with admin priviledges. The ""Administrator" account is only accessible from Safe Mode in this configuration.
