Thank you sir.
Ah! got right person at right time :-). For now, my question is: I am
using my Windows XP OS on a laptop and built using MinGW. However, once
I try to create a database cluster using "initdb -D
/c/postgresql-8.3.5/src/data" it shows me a message "The program
postgres is needed by initdb but was not found in the same directory as
c:/postgresql-8.3.5/src/bin/initdb/initdb.exe. Actually the folder data
in src folder does not exist. Check your installation". I just want to
use this folder for the server instance of postgres. I have checked the
directory structure but did not find postgres.exe anywhere. Any quick
idea? I appreciate your help. As a new to this world, I feel that I am
asking some stupid question and thank you for your patience.
