When I went through the OpenGeo Intro to PostGIS a couple of weeks ago, 
there was a suggestion (at 
http://workshops.opengeo.org/postgis-intro/creating_db.html) to issue 
the query, from pgAdmin:

    SELECT postgis_full_version();

The results in the example included PosGIS 1.5.1 and GEOS 3.2.3 which, 
given the time lapse (2008-2012), seem quite compatible with Paul's 
current announcement.
However, at the time, i /thought /i got this version number: PostGIS 2.0.1
To check, i've just reissued the query, but i got

    ERROR:  function postgis_full_version() does not exist
    LINE 1: SELECT postgis_full_version();

Two beginner's questions:

 1. Where might i have got "2.0.1" for PostGIS from?
 2. Why would i get the above error message?
