I didn't see a post on another list, so I'm guessing you're still
having problems.  I'm not sure which tut you were using from the wiki
you linked to, but section section 15.1 in the doc sums up
initialization, and the rest of chapter 15 explains what each command
is doing.

My guess is that you still need to create the default postgres DB.
