With this early release, I am hoping that the early birds will help me find and resolve any major holes that remain in the system. We are aware that this installer DOES initdb the data folder, so if you have data in that folder, back it up first!

Hopefully I'll have the StartupItem and the JDBC driver ready before the weekend, with the ODBC driver and the client tools for the weekend.
