edit /etc/webmin/miniserv.users
add the user you want to log in as i.e.:

edit /etc/webmin/webmin.acl
add this user to the list i.e.:
root: acl adsl-client apache at bind8 bsdexports burner cfengine change-user cluster-cron cluster-passwd cluster-shell cluster-software cluster-useradmin cluster-webmin cpan cron custom dfsadmin dhcpd dnsadmin exports fdisk fetchmail file firewall format fsdump grub heartbeat hpuxexports htaccess-htpasswd inetd init inittab ipsec jabber ldap-useradmin lilo logrotate lpadmin lvm mailboxes majordomo man mon mount mysql net nis openslp pam pap passwd postfix postgresql ppp-client pptp-client pptp-server procmail proc proftpd pserver qmailadmin quota raid samba sendmail sentry servers sgiexports shell shorewall software spam squid sshd status stunnel syslog telnet time updown useradmin usermin vgetty webalizer webminlog webmin wuftpd xinetd
