Have a look at the postgres-manual with special reference to the
SQL-command "GRANT". There you can grant different rights to different
users. Or use a GUI like pgadmin3[1].
This should solve your problems regarding the user-problem.

Since I have not used postgres8 yet (because it not yet in
debian-testing), I cannot help you on this topic.
