OK, I cannot even get postgresql loaded!


I am trying to load as a server so I can access from other computers on my
local network.


I start with postgresql-8.2.msi


I am a little lost when I get to Service configuration. If I just accept the
defaults I it says Invalid username specified: unknown user name or bad
password.  First I didn't enter a password and the gui doesn't have a box
labeled username.  


Can someone tell me what the Account name and Account domain do and what the
might be called?


If I change the Account domain to 'pg' it says would I like that account
creating (pq\postgres) and moves on.


I complete Initialize database cluster, ticking accept connections.


When I click install (a couple of guis later), I get 'postgres' already
exists and it rolls back.  OK I done this more than once!


If I do that all again but use psql as the Account name, I get another
warning 'Internal account lookup failure. No mapping between account names
and security IDs was done' and then it rolls back.


Can anyone help me?
