Installing Oracle 10g personal edition

I am new to Oracle. I just installed 10g personal version on my laptop with Windows XP on it. Now I would like to create users, however, I cannot login using the info from the documentation, eg: SYSTEM/MANAGER as login ID/password. Am I missing something? As far as I could tell during intallation there was no setting up of admin or user IDs or passwords. How am I supposed to do this?
I haven't installed the personal edition of the database, but I can't imagine it is much different than the other editions. Are you sure that you created a database during the installation? Since 9i, the database creation assistant has prompted for the SYS and system passwords, and you are required to enter them before it will finish the assistant. You should see an OracleServiceSID entry in the services control panel. If you do not, then you haven't created a database. To create a database, go to Start->Programs->Oracle
