nope, identical directories, almost exact same configurations, just the 
various newer releasaes of postgres, plus compatbility libraries so the 
RHEL components that are linked to libpq.so remain happy (php-pgsql, etc)

of course, like any version of postgres, you can't upgrade 8.1 to 8.3 or 
whatever without first doing a pg_dumpall and a restore on the new version
