How many lists are you converting over?  If it's just a few, then it is
easy to simply recreate the list in version 2.1 and then export/import
the users email addresses once all the 2.1 lists are up and running

In any case, I would recommend that you do start out small - move one or
two lists over to a Mailman 2.1 install.  That will let you learn more
about Mailman and also work out the kinks in moving the lists.

Good Luck -- Jon Carnes
