first of all thanks for your response and sorry for the delay, accidently I 
posted my password and had to change it immediatly and some how my computer 
got locked and took a while till i got back to business plus the holidays.
Ok, I open terminal, quote
Hershel-Fischs-Computer:~ hershelfisch$ su - postgres
Password:
Hershel-Fischs-Computer:~ postgres$ /usr/local/bin/postmaster -D /usr/local/
pgsql/data -i
and quote
Thanks a million, Hersel Fisch
