Yes, the package structure changed in 7.1 or thereabouts.
'org.postgresql.Driver' is the correct classname. 

Have you tried writing a standalone JDBC test app just to make sure
all the database plumbing works and you've got the right connection

BTW, the current stable release of Postgres is 7.1.3, and there were
quite a few bugs fixed since 7.1.0.  You might want to consider

Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees.
