I have a problem with cyradm as well

When launching it nothing happens..just waiting
I have other questions:
I often get the error telling me that the admin name in imapd.conf is not a valid option name. How comes? Should it be cyrus??
Is it a reason why I can't launch cyradm???
What about the permissions of the diffrent file configuration??

I need some help..has anybody a good how to??
