Go to Start->run ->  type cmd  <press enter>

say you get the c: prompt then type

C:\blah\blah> psql -U postgres template1

above assumes psql is in PATH. if it succeeds
you shall get a psql prompt.

once you get the prompt , follow the instructions in text book
to create new database , users etc.
