error on start

Our Linux admin just upgraded our server to fedora Core 2 which apparently upgraded postgres to version 7.4.2-1

Now on trying to start the postgres server we get the following error:

An old version of the database format was found.\nYou need to upgrade the
data format before using PostgreSQL.\nSee (Your System's documentation
directory)/postgresql-7.4/README.rpm-dist for more information.

Can someone give me some insight into this please? The database was not 
touched. Should it have been dumped and restored in upgrading from 7.3.4?
