You don't need a modem for tcp access on the same machine that is running
postgres. There is a loopback interface that is part of the OS that takes
care of that. You also have (the better) option of using domain sockets
for connecting to the database from the same host.

The database cluster directories are typically in /usr/lib/pgsql.
Each cluster will have its own directory. Typically you have one
cluster in the 'data' directory. The per cluster config files
(such as postgres.conf) will be in that directory. I don't know if
Redhat supplies you with a cluster or not. You can create new ones
using the initdb command. You give the location of the new cluster
using the -D option.
