    Actually, there is another way.  By going to manage accounts, and adding an account in the group "Cash & Equivalents" you've effectively created a bank or other cash account.  It will be MANUAL ONLY, but it works.  You can enter your transactions there just as you would any other general ledger account. So, there's two methods: the one Ben mentions above which will allow you to upload transactions if for instance your bank doesn't connect automatically but does offer downloads, and a purely manual register for your bank account.

    Good point Doug. I've updated the FAQ to reflect this.
