I don't have straight answers for you. But I would like to let you know that I am pretty much in a similar situation (I also just got Postgres 8.1 and Postgis running and linked with Grass). My goal is to transfer an Access data base with nation wide irrigation information of Mali and GRASS hydrological analysis into OSS and publish it through a web-gis application.
But to cut a long story short. This is a Grass user list. Therefore it's recommendable to post specific Postgresql and Postgis questions on the user-lists of these applications:
Additionally both have pretty good manuals:
Of course links between Grass and Postgis are appropriate here and you might find already relevant Grass-Postgis topics in the archives: http://grass.itc.it/pipermail/grassuser/ (for example January 2007)
Cheers and good luck,

Subject: [GRASS-user] Postgresql/postgis making databases
I have finally gotten postgresql and postgis installed along with
pgadm3 on OS X 10.4.9, which leaves me at the point of "What Now?"
Keep in that my familiarity is with Filemaker and Access, which, I am
sure every one will agree, are fairly "turn key" as the old
expression goes. Potgresql is another matter. I need someone's help
get to the next step. I believe passwords and permissions need to be
sorted out, then In need to create my data bases. I will need to
create tables, categories, populate the databases, and be able to
edit the information. Also, I need to be able to move the database
file(s) from my desktop to my laptop. Step by step instructions
would be best.
I am planning on starting work on my PhD research this summer, and
would like to use postgresql/postgis to create and maintain my
Anyone's help would be appreciated.
