Read the manual. Red Hat has good documentation. There are dozens of good
introduction to Linux articles/HOWTOs/books out there. Find a Linux Users
Group close to you and subscribe to their mailing list.

On the Red Hat manual you would have read about "RPM", the Red Hat Package
Manager.

It's _correctly_ split in more than one directory. To remove it you use
the "rpm" command. Or you can just upgrade to the new packaged version
using "rpm" as well.

The PostgreSQL documentation is geared for those installing from source
(i.e. compiling). It's not "poor". It's just that you don't understand how
things work, but don't be discouraged.

Download the new rpm packages for PostgreSQL 7.2.1 from one of the ftp
mirrors, then use 'rpm -Uvh package.rpm' to upgrade each of the packages
you need.

You could hire someone to do it for you or to teach you how.
