It sounds like you are using the installer method to
install PostgreSQL. Based on the FAQ you need to set
up a service type account and provide the user name
and password during installation. I would suggest
creating an account called postgres with a password
you know and provide that at startup. Then use that
account to run initdb, pg_ctl, createdb, and psql.
Once you know you can access the database with that
user you should be able to set things up for your
regular user id.
