There are 4 different versions of the 80-200mm/f2.8 AF. Only the very last version is AF-S and all TC-nnE teleconverters are only compatible with AF-S (and AF-I) lenses.
See this thread on the 4 versions of 80-200mm/f2.8 AF: http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=000nBZ
You cannot mount any TC-nnE converters onto the non-AF-S versions, unless you choose to file off the extra tab on the TC (at your own risk), and even so, there is no AF: http://nikonpages.heymanphotography.com/tcmod/
