Do you answer that, as a "newbie", or, as someone who has done it 
before? And, in using the term "newbie", do you refer to a person who is 
new to Linux, or, new to PostgreSQL?

If a person has no experience with PostgreSQL, is that person expected 
to already know how to instal, and set up, PostgreSQL, pgaccess, 
pgadmin, etc, without any instructions? I think not.
