I didn't realise that I had to do this - I just replaced Data.fs.  What about
the other files in the var directory, like Data.fs.tmp, Z2.lock, etc?  Is it
best to delete these as well, and start again with just Data.fs in the var

The only reason I was trying to do this is that ATContentTypes was showing up 
as broken.  When I tried to reinstall, I got that error.  I have sort of fixed 
now - I edited the Install.py script that it was complaining about, and 
commented out the statement that it was falling over at.  ATContentTypes
installed with no errors, and now I can edit my pages and create content again
:)  I know this is an ugly hack, but it works.  There must be a better way
Thanks for your help
