Julian, you may the postresql pdf found here:


it is set up for winxp, but the basics are the same
for linux.  use pgadmin3 to interact with your db in a
visual way and then you start using commandline
options as you get comfortable.

as a side not - when i first tried to install pgsql
8.0, i didn't know how to use pgadmin3 and i didn't
see a tutorial anywhere.

i then spent the next 30 days getting pgsql 7.x set up
using cygwin (must've installed and reinstalled cygwin
20-30 times, too - i was a total newb).  at the end of
the day, instructions to complete the tasks couldn't
be found anywhere on the net (at least not all in one
place).  here a little, there a little.

now that i know how to do it...  easy pickins.

good luck.
