Setting up a new database

Thanks those who have replied to my previous message.

I am using acedb43 on sun4.  In order to set up my own database, I first
cleared all files under database dir, deleted models.wrm file under wspec dir.
Then I created my own models.wrm file and a *.ace file under rawdata/.
The problem is after I started acedb, the main window still listed classes
like Map, Author, Sequence, Clone, etc.  The class I defined in the models.wrm
was not shown in the main window, but it was there when clicking Class menu.

After I read the *.ace file, the Class I defined was still not shown in the 
main window.  I would like to know why the main window always displays Map, 
Author etc. classes even though I already deleted the default models.wrm?
How can I let the system display classes that only defined in models.wrm? 

Also I found even I made changes to models.wrm, acedb would always load the
previous one. I can only delete all files under database/ in order to reflush 
the changes in models.wrm.  Is that right?
