So I'm looking for advice on displaying paginated query results.
Displaying 1 to 50 of 2905.
  1-50 | 51-100 | 101-150 | etc.

I do this by executing two queries. One is of the form:
SELECT <select list> FROM <view/table list> WHERE <filter> LIMIT m OFFSET n
The other is identical except that I replace the select list with COUNT(*).

This is the only way I know of how to do it.

I'm running PG 7.2.2 and want to upgrade to 7.4.1. I've never upgraded PG
before and I'm nervous. Can I simply run pg_dumpall, install 7.4.1, and then
feed the dump into psql?

I would practice and play with it on another machine until you can do it easily. You will learn a lot and the experience might prove invaluable in may ways :-)
