Hi There

I am new to PostGIS/PostgreSQL. Can somebody help me with the following support information.

I went as far as installing PostgreSQL & PostGIS. I require to configure the Geometry_Columns Table as in the manual. It is somewhat vague as to the inputs into the columns F_Table_Catalogue, F_Table_Schema & F_Table_Name. I have managed to sort out the other columns as indicated in the manual (4.2.2)

I have managed to connect to the database from various opensource desktop GIS software, but my database is not configured correctly. Is there any detailed material, other than the online manual I can look up or can somebody please help me to move on further from here. Ultimately, I would like to move data (shapefiles) into the database within some classification system (e.g. by Province, state, etc...) which can then be utilised by desktop and web users.
