The switch2osm instructions should help. That was written for PostGIS 1.5, so if you're using a later version some bits will be slightly different (e.g. something like "psql -d gis -c 'create extension postgis;'" instead of "psql -f /usr/share/postgresql/9.1/contrib/postgis-1.5/postgis.sql -d gis")

I don't get it. I went to the site and couldn't find how to set up PostGIS.

Presumably you read the bit that says "Installing postgresql / postgis"? What did you try and what did not work?

I would recommend using osm2pgsql. See the page on the OSM wiki
