Hi,

    I am installing Postgres for the first time on my Linux machine , I 
found the following  RPM packages for the RedHat 9

postgresql-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm     
postgresql-contrib-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-devel-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-docs-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-jdbc-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-libs-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-pl-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-python-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-server-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-tcl-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm    
postgresql-test-7.4.6-2PGDG.i686.rpm

    How do i know which one is for installing the Postgres server and 
what are the other packages for ? do i have to install all these
