My MacBook has only ever had one account on it until now.  I noticed that the Fast User Switching option wasn't showing up in my menu bar, so I went to System Preferences > Accounts > Login Options to enable it.  However, the option to "Show fast user switching menu" is grey and I cannot select the checkbox next to it.  Yes, I am using an admin account and yes, I have clicked the lock to make changes in the Accounts preferences pane.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
