I can't really:
* If I create the account /before/ shipping, when the user boots the
computer for the first time he won't be asked to create an account,
which misses the whole point of doing an OEM install.
* I can't create it /after/ shipping because then the computer is at the
user's desk. I don't want to walk him through 'useradd' or ask him for
his password. Either of those would miss the point of this exercise.
BTW: The point of the exercise is to study the suitability of OEM
machines with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. We have a non-technical
customer interested in a Linux pre-installed computer so we'll use him
as a test case.
