[postgis-users] Which *.shp files is the TIGER GeoCoder referring to, and where do co99_d00 and pl99_d00 come from?

I'm trying to setup the TIGER geocoder but am new at this sort of thing:
I've already finished the bit where i run import/load_tiger.sh successfully.
I'm using the 2006se TIGER line data. I now have all the PostGIS (on
Postgres 8.3) and two tables Landmarks and CompleteChain (with a
whopping 66 million records!/ 25gb footprint!) that took 28 hours to
Now it says to import the .shp files... Only question is, what shp files?
Here is the listing of the typical archive:
Then, finally, looking ahead: I opened up the enxt step which is
lookup_tables.sql and it in turn tries to create tables while drawing
from tables called
co99_d00 and pl99_d00 -- where do these tables get created? How?
I know that the 2007 data is now using .shp files (or at least that's
my understanding) -- do I need to download those, as well? Does that
introduce the risk of data that's not out of sync? For that matter,
what do I do with that data in the first place?
Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you,
