Hi all !

I've just join the newsgroup, and I've just installed postgis 6.0 on my
Redhat 7.2.

I would like to populate a spatial database with Esri shapefiles.
To do this I want to use the loader.

I've create my database as following :
createdb mydatabase

createlang plpgsql mydatabase
plsql -d mydatabase -f postgis.sql

and  a table
 CREATE TABLE mytable( ROAD_ID int4, ROAD_NAME varchar(128) );
   SELECT AddGeometryColumn( 'mydatabase', 'mytable', 'roads_geom',  -1,
'GEOMETRY', 3 );

but when I use shp2pgsql
shp2pgsql myshape.shp mytable
I 've got an error :
usage : pop <shapefile> <table> <SR_ID> <database>
what are the SR_Id ? my database is empty.
