You can get PostgreSQL by installing "postgresql-8.2".  At a terminal,

  $ sudo apt-get install postgresql-8.2

Or select the "postgresql-8.2" package in Synaptic.

The best way to install the database schema is to just use the "psql"
command line utility; save the file to disk and then, in a terminal, do
the following:

  $ cat outkafe.sql | psql DBNAME

You will need to create a database first and get the initial setup out
of the way.  See the PostgreSQL documentation for information on that.
The PostgreSQL documentation is rather lengthy; they do have a PDF copy,
and they have it available on Amazon, IIRC.  I printed the PDF copy out
a couple of years ago which is now out of date, and that was > 1000
pages, I think.
