The admin user can be one of the two users.  Or the other way round, if you

Its $750/seat for the FIRST year (less in larger quantities), 
$150/seat subsequent years.

For the record:  I have not connection to Perforce other than as a VERY

If Microsoft was like Perforce (software and support), I probably wouldn't be 
a Linux user.
