I have a debian based system and I am confused on the whole install. How do I create the mysql user for fudforum to use and then how do I create the database? DOes the installer create the db for you if you have a user already? if so, how do you create the user?

Well, your best bet is to go to MySQL.org and read how to create users. It is a little too complex to explain here.

As for adding MySQL databases that is easy, CREATE DATABASE database_name;

Why is this not covered at all in the readme or install documentation?

Because the assumption is that you already have MySQL database & user names, since most hosting providers give you one by default. And people who installed their own mysql generally know how to add users.

When FUDforum 2.0 comes out and I am writing documentation for it, I'll include some basic MySQL instructions.
