Is there an easy way to migrate a Postgres 7.x database to version 8.x? I'm migrating data from a Debian Linux machine to a Fedora 5 one.

Thanks. I was able to export a version 7.x database to version 8.x. I used psql dbname <infile to import the database, however. I haven't tried using pg_restore yet.
