Hi,

In PostgreSQL 8.1, when I'm in psql, the command "\du" produces a table 
with one of the columns as "Create role". What does "yes" under "Create 
role" mean?
(I know that "Create role" seems pretty self-explanatory, but what 
perplexes me is all the users have "no" under "Create role". Does this 
mean that all the users are not allowed to create roles?)

Thanks,
C
