You can use the "adduser" command to create the postgres user on your linux
box.  I use Uid:26 Gid:100, but I don't know that it matters.

  I am using Redhat linux 9. At the time of instllation i omitted the option
of SQL server. AFter installing Linux 9 i started installing postgresql

  After installing i am unable to enter into the path

root$ su postgres
su: user postgres does not exist

Note: At the time of installing itself i get problem while setting
permission as
       root&    chown postgres.postgres /usr/local/pgsql/
       chown: `postgres.postgres': invalid user

Even if i tried the postgres --version i am getting output as

root$  postgres --version
postgres (PostgreSQL) 7.4.5

Please help me to enter into $ su postgres

Warm Regards,
