    I have a D80 and am looking to upgrade to a D300 and got to looking at the 11 AF points in the D80. I have thankfully switched to almost entirely manual (except for focusing) for a while but recently switched back to auto for a quick shot. I forgot that in auto the camera would pick several different areas to focus on. How can I focus on several areas at the same time in manual mode?

    Hmmmm, I don't think that animal exists on the D80. In Auto Area AF mode, the camera will select the focus point, but does not accomplish this with multiple focus points simultaneously. Otherwise, the options are Single Area or Dynamic Area modes, both of which are user defined focal points set by the multi selector keypad. See pages 30 & 87 of the manual.
