The servers seem to run ok, but I can't get psql to run...

postgres at ridley:~$ psql -l
Error: You must install at least one postgresql-client-<version> package.
postgres at ridley:~$ dpkg -l | grep postgres
ii  postgresql-8.0                         8.0.7-2build1

I've tried various combinations of attempting to install / uninstall the 
packages but with no success. I could probably get by with just the 8.1 psql, 
but the -client packages are tied to the server packages, so I can't just 
install one.   Is there some magic to getting both 8.0 and 8.1 working 
concurrently on the system?
