Being in a similar situation (new to PostgreSQL)... I would say that 
while the tutorials in the first section of the PostgreSQL manual are 
great for SQL stuff... something similar for new users stuck 
*administering* their own postgres server would be very useful.

Yes, the Fine Manual has all the necessary information... *if* you know 
what to look for.

YMMV,
