Tom, I lost running system and had to restart.  I could not get system to
restart until user 'postgres' cd'd to /data things are going now and I have
created user, etc. OK.  I left message I was preparing before sucess below.
No telling what I had done.

Thanks a lot,
aborted draft follows:
Tom, this seemed like the most likely source of problem (silly typo).
Howeever, I was scrolling back in terminal window and saw correct entries
when I posted the problem.

I have since had to reboot system (yea I know a real guru would have been
able to ssh in and kill hung xprocess, but that's not me and I am not sure
what the host needs to allow the other box, a Windows machine, in etc.).
The long and short is I can no longer go look at my entries and I now cannot
get postgres  to restart!  Current problem(s):
su postgres
postmaster -D /var/local/
