to move the database

Postgresql does not do in-place upgrade of databases .

use pgdump from postgres 8.3  when backing up 8.1 database

Install postgresql 8.3 create the database then restore the backed up 
database to 8.3

if you are still having problems go to the postgresql mailing list 
pgsql-general is the one you want, it has the most traffic and people 
are very helpful.

Postgresql also has a wiki

I've even tried moving from 8.1 to 8.2 as an intermediate step before going to 8.3.  Nothing is working for me.  Can someone clarify the steps for me?  I have read the Manual:Upgrading_Postgres page.
