ok. Follow what Benoit said and make sure you edit the right file. I had
this problem where in FC5 pg_hba.conf are located in three places. One in
/usr/share/pgsql second one in /usr/local/pgsql and another one in
/var/lib/pgsql/data. When I googled this problem, it turns out that you
should edit pg_hba.conf from /usr/share/pgsql or /usr/local/pgsql and
execute following command.

pg_ctl reload

This will copy the edited file to /var/lib/pgsql/data directory where the
pgsql service reads it from. You should try this first. If this does not
work, edit pg_hba.conf from /var/lib/pgsql/data directory. I am not sure if
there is any security risk with editing from there. you should edit what
Benoit said and leave rest of the settings alone. I think having md5
encryption even on local network is good practice. I hope this works.
