Ok I'm and old pro at SQL (DB2, Access) but a total Linux/Unix idiot.  

I have Mandrake RedHat Linux and think I have postgresql installed.

At the shell I type 

psql template1 

Linux complains

connectDB() failed:  Is postmaster running and accepting conections at
'UNIX SOCKET' on port 5432

Being a near complete Linux idiot I have no clue what this means.

Anybody care to help?
