[pmwiki-users] Help with Authuser and Group administration

I'm just getting started with PmWiki, and I have some very basic questions.
I installed PmWiki using the instructions on
(I downloaded 'pm-wiki-latest.tgz on December 9, 2011)
Everything went well, as far as I can tell.
I set up site 'admin' and edit passwords in my local/config.php file
$DefaultPasswords['admin'] = crypt('myadmingibberish');
$DefaultPasswords['edit'] = crypt('myeditgibberish');
I turned on AuthUser by adding
# authuser with $farmD
right below the lines that say
## Highly recommended for new wikis.
Then I set up a group by adding the parameter just below the Authuser lines
$GroupPattern = '(?-i:Site|SiteAdmin|PmWiki|Main|Garden)';
I added a 'homepage' for the Garden Group
This is my garden page
Now for the questions or problems.
I don't understand what to add to the 'Site.AuthUser Attributes' page,
or the 'SiteAdmin.AuthList' page.
I'm assuming that I want to be able to set up a new administrative user
here. I'd also like to be able to set up rights for the Garden group,
and add users to that group.
Initially, I'd like only administrative users to be able to add or edit
pages in the Main group, and members of the Garden group to be able to
add or edit pages start with /Garden.
As far as I can tell, the setup that I've done to this point only allows
me, admin, to add or edit any pages. So if I could get help first on
how to add users to the Garden group, and then on how to give them
privileges to create and edit pages in their group. Hopefully, then I
could add additional users to an Administrative group.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
I've pasted the url's (changed to 'mysite') and the text from the three
of the Administrative pages below. Please let me know if this is too
much information to post to the list.
Enter new attributes for this page below. Leaving a field blank will
leave the attribute unchanged. To clear an attribute, enter 'clear'.

This page displays the permissions settings for pages that have
permissions set. Fields that say "(protected)" mean that you may need to
log in (e.g., with an administrative password) in order to view them.
