If I had to choose between those two, I'd go D80. Unlike the D60, the D80 has a built in focus motor to drive older non AF-S lenses so you have more lense choices. Sometimes you can find a nice AF-D lense literally half the price of its AF-S version from someone who is 'upgrading'. The D60 (and D40 series) needs AF-S lenses to auto focus. Non AF-S will fit and work other than auto focus on a D60 if you dont mind manually focusing. Sigma (lenses with the built in motor are called HSM) and Tamron (just started) are making lenses that have built in motors for Nikon also.
A D60 is basically a entry level dslr. A D80 is a step above it. D80 will have more features than a D60.
