this is a documentation bug. Till this version we had the problem, that
the autoinstallation didn't consider the adminuser, now this bug fixed.
To set a explicit adminuser, the binaries and the SGE_ROOT has to be 
owned by the admin user.
This was the only way to set the adminuser name.
The autoinstall procedure runs very well as user root!

Please file a bug.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
