Thanks roland for replying. I've actually done it twice, the first time is to
follow the installation instruction published by postgresql. It asked me to
create a postgresql user account and group and create the top-level install
directory using them. The second time I actually use root to do everything....
Same results for both installation.... Strange... Any idea?

Thanks again!

Eugene
