Try installing 8.1 now:
sudo apt-get install postgresql-8.1
Ubuntu (being based on Debian) should allow you to run both versions at
once. Once it is installed, make sure your old database is configured
as 8.1. pg_lsclusters should show it; if not you will have to get it
configured right. Then you should be able to pg_dump it, or even
upgrade it with pg_upgradecluster.
