Here's the auto generated response I got from MT:
Welcome to Movable Type! We have installed Movable Type on your server and configured the paths for the initial weblog in the system per your request. Do not delete this weblog ("First Weblog") unless you know what you are doing, because it is already configured for your server. You can also edit the templates themselves; more information on template tags and customization is in the manual.
I like the "unless you know what you are doing" part. I've always been the type to forget the instructions and figure it out on my own. This approach has caused me both pleasure and pain. I'll keep you posted.
