hey.

i'm using debian with the following configuration:

postgresql     7.1release-4   
postgresql-cli 7.1release-4   
postgresql-con 6.5.3-26           
postgresql-doc 7.1release-4   
postgresql-sli 6.3.2              

and i want it to listen to on tcp/ip as well as the
defaul unix socket. the stuff i've read says that i
need to put the following in
/etc/postgresql/postmaster.init

PGALLOWTCPIP=yes
PGPORT=5432

it seems that the file listed above is no longer being
used in debian to configure postgres. so i thought i
would use the pg_hba.conf file instead. no luck. can
someone tell me where i have to put this informatoin?
i've used redhat in the past and all i had to do was
use the '-i' option when starting the postmaster. 

the stuff in debian is a bit confusing. any help would
be appreciated.

thanks.
john
