Thanks for the replies.

Ideally, I'd like to have CentOS 4 running on the system.
Unfortunately, the hosting company that we have our VPS only offers
Centos 3.6.

If I can already find RPMs already for Postgres 8.1.x, it's gonna make
my job a lot easier.

Stand before it and there is no beginning.
Follow it and there is no end.
Stay with the ancient Tao,
Move with the present.
