The method I used to resolve this was to:
1) Use Control Panel to Remove the previous installation. It left
behind the 'data' folder.
2) Install with the msi file choosing not to install as a service.
3) After installation was complete, the log stated:
MSI (c) (38:10) [07:57:45:317]: Product: PostgreSQL 8.3 --
Installation completed successfully.
4) I set the environment variable 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH' to 'C:\pgHome
5) Set the environment variable PGDATA to 'C:\pgHome\8.3\data'.
6) Renamed the old 'data' folder to 'data_old'.
7) From the command prompt, I executed 'initdb' with no parameters
allowing PGDATA to drive the location, which responded with:

8) Executed: 'pg_ctl -l firstlogfile.txt start' which produced a
logfile in the bin folder (from where the command was issued).
9) Executed 'createdb' to produce a new database under my logon name.
10) From pgAdmin3, the new server was visible.
11) From pgAdmin3, I set 3 more connections which established 3
12) From pgAdmin3, I dropped the original server setup from the
13) Each server has 2 databases: postgres and myname.
Now, if I can just find out if these are persistant and useful . . .
