The first time it attempts to use a keyring and it is not found, it will
prompt you for a password to create the keyring with.  You'll have to
enter that password twice, and then you'll be able to use that password
in the future to get single-passworded access to everything that is
stored in the keyring.  I've been using that since Edgy and been really
happy with it.

Without seeing what it's popping up exactly, I don't know what it is
asking for.  You can manage your keyring using
Applications->Accessories->Passwords and Encryption Keys.  You might
find some clues there that will help you out.
