Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

Continuing the YASQ series but now updated for MOSS let me introduce my contribution to Yet Another MOSS Quirk (YAMQ).

I was trying to enable Windows SharePoint Search Service on a MOSS Server, on the configuration page I kept entering the required user accounts as just "UserName", and the configuration kept failing. I tried this over and over, and checkign the username, password, secuirty permissions etc. with no luck. The logs provided no help either.

How do you get around it, you need to enter the user accounts as "Domain\UserName" instead of just "UserName".
