Installing Postgres 7.3

Hi I am in desperate need of help.I want to install progress and create a new DB.

I have installed postgres, and tried to create a new db with the following cammand:

createdb -E UNICODE database_name

But get the following error:

Could not connect to server: file or directory does not exist. Is the user running locally or on a unix domain.

Please what am I doing wrong
