Also, @Josiah, be cautious in setting up your chart of accounts, because once you post entries to an account, you will not be able to delete it without deleting or reallocating those transactions. In other words, an account that seems useful now will remain with forever unless you take what might be tedious actions to get rid of it.
I strongly suggest creating a test company first to make sure you have things right without endangering your real data. You can then backup and re-import the test company as a new business to carry over the chart of accounts. Hopefully, at that point you will only have a few transactions to delete to get back to a clean starting point.
