I have a noob question about contract creation. I'm following this tutorial: https://www.ethereum.org/dao However there's a step in there that I don't quite understand. After I enter the contract code, fill out my values for how I want the contract to work, at the bottom I see this:
Total: 0.02977296 ETHER
Now at the top of the contract, it says AMOUNT: 0.00 ETHER and gives me an option to send ether to the contract.
Do I have to send the contract ether? And if so, how would I determine how much ether to send it? Do I keep that top box at 0.00 ether and just let the total at the bottom be 0.02977296 ETHER? I'm a little confused.
