itīs a great database. thereīs a very good book by momjan or similar about sql and postgresql, too. worth reading. how did u install it? did u put it to /home/... ? thereīs a command to invoke postmaster i no more remember exactly. isnīt there an instruction how to install and start shipping with the download?
good luck

sorry i couldnīt write sooner.
i was wrong. itīs installed to /usr/.. then u can run 'initdb' to create a local 'instance' of the template db. as far as i remember u have to type sth. like postgresql initdb using a user bash. then 'postmaster' to start the server. i hope someoneelse knows more exactly. all i remember for sure is that root bash donīt work at all
good luck
