Rosser is correct, although /in theory/ you should be able to "bucardo add database" 
a non-existent entry (see other email). It won't gain you much, however, as it will 
need to exist before getting too much further.

Worse case scenario you could (carefully!) use a dummy database to get everything 
setup, then change the bucardo.db table to point to the real one when it is up 
and running.
