Fresh Install read-only problem.

I just installed alfresco on my windows machine for development.  I got the bundled version with tomcat, and I'm using jdk1.5.0_12 and MySQL Server 5.0.  When I login as admin and try to add a user (the first step in the tutorial), I get the following error:

Please correct the errors below then click Finish.

    * Failed to create Person due to error: Access Denied. The system is currently in read-only mode.

Also, in the tomcat log, I see this:

12:05:26,312 ERROR [repo.avm.OrphanReaper] Garbage collector error
org.alfresco.repo.security.permissions.AccessDeniedException: Access Denied.  The system is currently in read-only mode.

Any help would be great.  Once I get it working on windows, I'll be ready to try it on our RHEL server.  Thanks.
