I know that shimano hubs are 8/9/10 compatable but how about Campy? Can I put an 9 speed cassette on an 8 speed hub or will I be in for a new wheelset?

Campy 9, 10, and 11 cassettes are interchangeable with 9, 10, 11 speed rear hubs. If I recall correctly, there was a spline pattern change between 8 and 9 speed that causes compatibility issues putting 9, 10, or 11 speed cassettes on an 8 speed hub.
I can't remember, though, if the 8 speed cassette will work on the higher speed hubs.
