I'm trying to install Postgres on a Debian machine.  I did a successful 
apt-get.  At this point I'm not sure how to proceed.  I have seen 
several web sites with similiar instructions 
(http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/postgresql.htm), but I don't see anything 
similiar in the Postgres documentation.

Question 1: what is the next step? 

Question 2: can someone recommend a documentation page that explains 
what to do?

Question 3: I'm totally confused about permissions.  What portion of the 
install must be done as a linux super user and what can be done as a 
postgres user?

Thanks for any help and/or guidance,
-=beeky
