I'm trying to install PostgreSQL8 now using the instructions provided by the following link "", but when i'm trying to change user to postgres nothing happens, the user remains the same:

93-80-29-243:PostgreSQL8 olgaryzikova$ su - postgres
93-80-29-243:PostgreSQL8 olgaryzikova$

If i understand correctly i can only start PosgreSQL server under the postgres user - but i can't switch to this user and also do not see it in my System preferences --> Accounts...

May be somebody had similar problems? How do you think it is possible to solve it?
