Hi,

I just starting to get involved on the open source environment, my name is 
juan and really interested on learning about Postgre SQL.

Accordding what I have read, PostgreSQL is based on two main function or 
capabilities:

1.- Server Side, which main functions are Database Creating and Managing, as 
well as Maintenance and Troubleshooting.

2.-Client Side, which main functions are Database Query, and remote data 
Handling.

I am trying to install PostgreSQL on my computer, however it seems i require 
Unix System intalled on it before creating any table on PostgreSQL. Actually 
i have MS-DOS sistem on my computer so i will have to install Linux. My 
question is, can i install Mandrake 10.1 on my computer before installing 
PostgreSQL?, is that enough?. I think once Linux gets installed the whole 
syste will work on Unix Operating System then i would be able to install 
PostgreSQL, right?,or do i have to install a more powerfull Linux version in 
order to start creating the Database.

On the other hand, i downloaded "postgresql-8.0.3.zip" from postgreSQL page, 
is this the package the one i must install to initiate creating my database?

Thanks for your answers.
Kind Regards
