Hi Tom,

   To reset the HN administrator password when you lost it, you need to do
two things: (1) Edit the hnpeople/<name> file and remove the password from
the "Password:" field in this file. (2) Remove the entry of this member
from hnpeople/.htpasswd.

   To add a second administrator, the procedure you described will do. When 
you later logon to change the password for this new accouCnt, the form may
show '*****' in the password input field even though the password is blank,
so make sure you delete these '*****' and leave the input field empty when
you hit "Update" for this new member.
