No I hadn't. Thank you that was it. I to another look at the install doc
and didn't see this step in there.  I then looked at the README file on the
ACCUMULO website and it is in there.
I was able to start accumulo and then start an accumulo shell and execute
the tables command and it listed !METADATA. I presume that this means I am
up and running.

I am going to use the enron dataset for my demo. I do have a few questions
regarding how to structure it if you don't mind a few more questions.

thanks again.
