Missing Menu after Install

I've tried a number of times to install Silverstripe but each time after the install appears to work correctly I have no menu. I can login to the admin area and play with pages and even view different pages via the "draft" and "published" tabs but on none of these is there ever a menu.

In the html on the default site is:

<div id="Header">

I'm guessing that's where the menu normally is. Any ideas on this one?

The menu is initially removed as the environment is set up for beginning the first tutorial ( This'll probably change in future releases.

If you cant follow that tutorial and just want it to work try downloading our new theme BlackCandy That should be all setup with the menus etc.

Great thanks for that, sorry I guess I should've tried the tutorial first thing. I figured something was wrong as all the screenshots I saw of installs showed the menu included.
