Hi all,

I have trouble installing psycopg, kept getting errors on "missing PostgreSQL headers".
Can someone please help me? Can someone please tell me specifically what one needs to
copy to get the headers all together. I'm using a Redhat 8 Linux installation 
and a Fedora Core 2 installation.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here is the log of the install attempt:

Thank you in advance.
