Problems with OEM installation

I'm still testing the Ubuntu OEM installation. I finished the install 
and shut off the computer. In theory, the next step is to ship it to the 
consumer. So I turned it on again to see what the end user would see:

* The initial boot up correctly asked me for a keyboard, language and 
timezone settings.

* However, it did *not* ask me to create a new account. In theory, it 
should ask the user for a username and password which they use from then 
on. I suspect that this might be because I created a dummy account to 
test the /etc/skel idea. I guess that all I can do now is start from 
scratch and install everything again :(

* I can no longer login with the 'oem' password. Is this in purpose? 
Does Ubuntu disable the OEM account after the reboot?

    /\/_/   A life? Sounds great!
    \/_/    Do you know where I could download one?
