The device you are looking for is a Web Feature Server or "WFS". The following link describes setting this up:
and the examples folder in the openlayers distro has a bunch of different WFS examples in it. Good luck and stay in touch,

Okay new to this whole thing.
1. I took an ESRI shape file and used shp2pgsql and got it into Postgres.
2. Made a mapserver layer of type line.
3. Successfully called layer from browser and openlayers of type WMS.
4. However I would really like this to be a vector layer. Is there anyway
to do this? I have heard mention of a "feature server"??? Can anybody
direct me to where I can find information?
