It depends on your permissions. Personally, I'd just set the BESAdmin account for SysAdm access to the server (master) and let the installation do it's job.
If you ever migrate the database to a new server, in order to recreate certain system tables, you'll copy the \Database folder from the installation package and run 'createdb.exe besmgmt.cfg' to create the database then install as normal (or change databases through the BlackBerry Server Configuration application).
With that said, it's really up to you on what to do initially. I find it easier to allow the installer to do it's magic, but you need to make sure you have the DOMAIN\BESAdmin account added and the SysAdm role configured for it.
