You have to do a 'dump/initdb/restore' cycle, as inconvenient as it may be.

Restore your 6.5 installation.

Then, run pg_dumpall and place the resulting ASCII dump somewhere you can 
find it.

Now, install 7.1, either from RPM (which is available) or from source.  You 
will need to go through the initdb portion of the installation document.

Now, follow the instructions on upgrading, beginning with the restore process
