It sounds like you are using the installer method to 
install PostgreSQL.  Based on the FAQ you need to set 
up a service type account and provide the user name 
and password during installation.  I would suggest 
creating an account called postgres with a password 
you know and provide that at startup.  Then use that 
account to run initdb, pg_ctl, createdb, and psql.

Once you know you can access the database with that 
user you should be able to set things up for your 
regular user id.
