Since he's talking at the su level, perhaps postgres needs a new linux 
password? That would be done, as root, by typing "passwd postgres", then 
following the directions to change the user's password. I'm sure linuxconf 
and other admin tools have this option, but for simple password changes, 
I've found passwd to be the quickest :)
