Hi Thomas

I've recently gone through this migrating from version 2.1 to 2.5 and had
a real hard time.

I installed a fresh version of 2.1.3 making sure that all of the products
(and I had loads!!) are installed, swapped over the data.fs and then used

Next up, another fresh plone (v2.5) again making sure that all
dependencies are taken care of.

be aware that any changes to your old templates may not work in 2.5- I
found it easier to modify the standard ones that come with 2.5.
Hope this helps
