In Cyrus' config file (/etc/imapd.conf) there should be the line 
"admins: <logins that you want to be admins>".  In the default config file
this line is commented out - you must edit the file before using cyradm.

The username given to cyradm is then a user listed as an admin and 
the passwd is the normal unix passwd for that user. 

You can then create user mailboxes by typing "cm user.<username>" at
the cyradm prompt for each user.
