Linux 8 and Linux 9???

If you refer to linux, you are referring to the kernel. You are probably mentioning a distribution release number such as Red Hat 9 or Mandrake 9.

Without the specifics of your distribution, all I can do is give some links.

See postgres installation instructions at:

This contains instructions for all 7.3.x versions. Also make sure you do not already have postgres installed. It comes with RH 8 and 9. There are some issues to content with if you are trying to upgrade from the stock version to 7.3.x. You can check to see if it is installed a lot of ways. One may be to run:

find / -name postgres

if you get a result, it is already installed. Then you just need to learn how to use the version you have unless you need the latest edition.
