Hello Again

    What I have done is modified the basic startup script on redhat and 
change the PGDATA and PGPORT to the corresponding port number and db 
path. For my other startup parameters I have modified the 
postgresql.conf in each database structure file this way I can start and 
stop the databases easily. Just curious are you running the databases 
from servers or workstations.
