postgresql jdbc database server...?????????

This is pissing me off really bad.I want to execute a java program which has to connect to a database and i have seen that redhat 7.2 provides postgresql database server. i have looked at the postgresql.conf file and all the lines are commented(all lines start with #). i could start the postgresql server and su - postgres and create a database.but i donot see postgresql in the netstat output because i heard that it has to connect to port 5432 (i remove the commnet from that line in the postgresql.conf file) to be able to use jdbc driver version 2.Btw i downloaded pgjdbc2.jar from postgresql sit e and renamed it to postgresql.jar. even now i get a class not found error on Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver"); line in my java program.i have also uncommented the tcpip_socket=true . but i dont know if i have to uncomment any other line in postgresql.conf or if i have to get jdbc driver for my java1.4 version or ??????????
i am really clueless . ihave searched a lot but the documentation is too clumsy and i found it real hard to understand what to do.Please give me step by step introduction to what i should do or direct me to a howto.i would be real greatful .i know sql but iam not at all knowledgeble about the database server management and configuration.
thanks in advance
Sridhar Guntur.

Did you start it with the option -i to enable tcp/ip support?
