    If we use forms authentication in our web application we need an initial
    administrator account from which the first user can log on to create new
    users and assign roles. How do others do this, use the member ship API to
    create the first user as part of the installation process or use direct SQL

  2. Add the default admin user and roles to the database/directory service by
    hand, or as part of the installation routine. That's what most applications
    do - think of the admin accounts for application servers and wireless router
    setup pages.
