Running PostgreSQL 7 & 8 Simultaneously

I need to run two different versions of PostgreSQL. Currently my server
is configured to use PostgreSQL 7.4 and I need to also run PostgreSQL
8.3. I noticed that there are different ports for different versions of
PostgreSQL. If I install the port for 8.3, will that cause any problems
with my existing 7.4 configuration? 8.3 will need to run on a different
port, of course, but other than that I can't think of any other issues.


Thanks in advance for any advice.
