Upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10

I'm a little behind on my version of Ubuntu at home. Last night I finally upgraded to 8.10. Very smooth compared to past experiences. Video didn't work at first. I just deleted my xorg.conf entirely and then X started up just fine. My apache virtual host was not being served. Everything caused the default junk in /var/www to be served up. Here's what I believe the relevant diff off /etc/apache2/sites-available/default was:
bryan@brzo:/etc/apache2/sites-available$ diff -urNp default.dpkg-old default.dpkg-new
--- default.dpkg-old    2007-10-31 21:38:12.000000000 -0700
+++ default.dpkg-new    2008-09-19 06:41:53.000000000 -0700
@@ -1,5 +1,4 @@
-NameVirtualHost *
-<VirtualHost *>
+<VirtualHost *:80>
Restoring NameVirtualHost * and <VirtualHost *> statments seemed to fix the problem. I have not taken the time to understand why, and if anyone wants to comment and enlighten me I'll greatly appreciate it. Look for another post soon on how the upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04 goes! I know, try to contain your excitement.
