where did that come from? maybe its set-up by some wizard? I'd assume its for a bank certificate of deposit. If you don't have one, then you don't need the account.

A line of credit is a liability like any other loan. Set up a liability account. Any time you use the line of credit you are crediting the line of credit and debiting the expense account or asset account or whatever as appropriate. When you get the statement from the line of credit, simply enter the interest charges, reconcile like any other account etc.
