You are *not* supposed to uninstall PostgreSQL.  The PostGIS website says 
that, to install PostGIS, you have to:

Un-tar the PostGIS tar-ball in the 'contrib' directory of your PostgreSQL 
source tree. You must have the PL/pgSQL prodedural language installed 
before installing PostGIS.

tar xvfz postgis-1.1.0.tar.gz
cd postgis-1.1.0
make install
createlang plpgsql yourtestdatabase
psql -d yourtestdatabase -f lwpostgis.sql
psql -d yourtestdatabase -f spatial_ref_sys.sql

You may want to look at the PostGIS site for documentation:

Thank you very much.
