yes all you'll get is a ROOT user -- on Vbox or a regualr install... 
Because you're the dude or dudette that is in full control of that system, 
so logically you're going to have only root user. that is old school, good 
school. from there you just create your user or users you want on the 
system, then do your superUser duties in providing the user with what he or 
she needs to run the system themselves. Ie sudo, and such ... happy days,
