If you want a root user you can do that, it's just not the default.

I'm not sure what issue you are having.  Do the install, the user 
created during the install will be your user (who you can consider as 
root user when that user uses sudo).  Then add new users.  Each of the 
subsequent users will not have any admin abilities.
