changing Drupal's Home/Welcome/Start page

I'm currently playing around with Drupal a bit to get a simple but nicely configurable CMS for my managed hosting setup going.

It looks quite nice, can be setup with a single click as Hosteurope delivers it as a easy installable package (no nice security updates ans nothing, so for testing only! - but enough for checking it out before installing an up to date version).
And many things are quite intuitive.

Yet, one thing isn't: the setup of the start page!

After searching a while I found a hint here that helped me getting it done:

Change the value "Default front page" in the Admin menu at
Administer/Site Configuration/Site information/Default front page to the node youi created before and wish to use as your start page, for example, in my case, the field contains "node/1"
