Why didn't i think at this. Tied, probably ;-! Thanks, Frank for
pointing us in this direction ;)
100 times true, even for a newbie under MacOS X in getting the cool
Marc Liyanage's installer at
or under Windows in using the PostgreSQL Beta 8.0 and the windows
dedicated tools coming with it at
<http://www.postgresql.org> and <http://pgreplicator.sourceforge.net/>
I'm using PG all the time under both Linux and MacOS X (can help) but
havn't begin to test and work with the replicator for yet (can't help).

Same again ;)
