I've been given an assignment to create a C# application that queries an 
existing postgreSQL database and displays a report gui. 

Right now, I'm just trying to learn SQL/PostgreSQL.   

Is there a noob forum, or is this the best way to ask questions? 

My first problem is after installing PostreSQL on a Windows XP machine, 
I'm having the basic problem of receiving the 

"createdb: database creation failed: ERROR:  permission denied to create 
Error when following the simple example in the online help documentation 
in the Tutorial (secion 1.3). 

My XP login is of the form "John Doe", and I created a role "John Doe", 
but I'm still getting the above error... :(   

How do I use the command window or PGA command intrepter to add 
permissions?  I wasn't able to following the instructions in the tutorial. 

Any suggesions?
