I'm a newbie trying to install Postfix / Cyrus on SLES 10

Followed along instructions and create a user named cyrus and set the 

I can su - cyrus
but when I "cyradm localhost" it ask's for a password (which I 
haven't given any that I know of) and then errors.

Login failed: authentication failure at 
multi/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with  as cyrus

If I just type cyrus it logs in but lm yeilds "listmailbox: no 
connection to server"

Message in /var/log/messages is:
mailtest imap[13387]: badlogin: localhost [] plaintext cyrus 
SASL(-13): aut
hentication failure: checkpass failed

I've tried the password for luck.

How is this suppose to work?
