|    Is a good idea to ln -s the pg_xlog directory onto another place, while the postmaster is running?

I don't think so



|     I agree with pablo, documentation at this point is not easy to found.

I disagree instead:

1) Go on the first doc page:  http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/interactive/index.html
2) Search for backups
3) The first 4 entries are what you have to know

Please do not take this as RTFM
