I actually did generate my first key using 2.x, and then upgraded to 5.  I
think my confusion can be summarized as: 

I am not at all sure where or how to register my keys.  Consider that I
will send apache email as, not ... and I
believe this is an extra step in creating/registering the key.  Here are
the keys I have right now: 

% pgpk -l dgaudet
Type Bits KeyID      Created    Expires    Algorithm       Use
sec+ 1023 0x163751F5 1997-08-18 ---------- RSA             Sign & Encrypt

0x163751F5 is the old key I generated with 2.6.x.  The other is a newer
key.  I've put them into some servers, but I've no idea if I've put them
into the servers people expect. 

My keys don't have any trust -- because I don't attend many conferences,
and am totally confused about what I need to do to get other folks to sign
my keys (whatever the terminology is).  This is compounded by the fact
that lots of folks still use 2.6.x and don't know how to tell me what the
magic pgp 5.x invocations are for the various operations.
