Hey

You don't need to specify a level - you can just enter the string:
conf t
enable password [password]

You can set a privilege level if you wish - between 0 and 15 (15 being highest).  You can then set privilege levels on certain commands and you will need to be logged on with the required privilege level to utilise these.  

hope this helps

Enable is enable

you can use the following if you chose to do local authentication

username somedude priv 15 password somestring  

that would give you a user of somedude complete contol and the password of somestring.  

Thanks

If you don't specify a level then it will make it level 15 by default, and that's what you'll see in the config afterwards.
