    Setting up the PS3 now. I could do with a bit of help, actually. I daresay I'm just being terribly dense, but I'm a bit confused about how user accounts work.

    I set up an account on my computer ages ago when I registered my PlayStation 2.

    When I was setting up my PlayStation 3, I was asked to enter a user ID. What I'm a bit confused about is whether this is the same as the one I set up on my computer. I've used the one I set up on my computer to log into the PlayStation Store from the PlayStation 3, but I have a different one (the one I entered on setting up the PS3) under the USERS section of the menus.

    I'm still learning to understand how the menus work, but the one I set up on my computer (and used to log into PSN from my PS3) now appears to be in the FRIENDS section - I think.

    Can anybody help clear this up for me? I don't want to start buying stuff or earning trophies with the wrong account.
