The documentation to convert hook_submit to drupal 6 says to add
$form['#submit'], not to create a nodeapi(presave). I'm a bit confused here.
Should I convert my hook_submits to nodeapi(presave) or should I simple add
$form['#submit'] to the form?

I believe if I change it to nodeapi(presave) then I won't need to call
hook_node_submit() before calling node_save() as this would be taken care by
the presave call in node_save(). But it seems that even in drupal 6, if I
use $form['#submit'] I'll still have to do a call to the hook_node_submit()
before calling node_save().

Am I missing something here?
