Ahh, there's the config file. Cool. I learned a couple of things about
PostgreSQL finding it. Okay, the default should have let anything on the
same host connect, and that was true with the "psql" application.

This gives me some things to try. Thanks. I can't figure out why I didn't
see this file before since I've been to that directory. I don't remember
it being mentioned in the Administrator's Docs. Oh well. ;)

The "-i" option doesn't seem to be known by the /usr/bin/postmaster
application. It doesn't recognise the option and it is not in the man
pages. The PG_VERSION file says 6.1, but the software package manager
(RPM) tells me I've got version 6.2.1. Is the "-i" option part of a later
