It's me again :-)

I haven't yet had th time or the courage to upgrade my old 1.5.3
installation to 1.8.x. And I still have a question:

What does "working" mean? Do I have to set up a second, fully
operational wiki, and then run moin? Where does the migrated data go?Is
the existing old data modified in place or is it fixed and copied into
the new wiki's data directories? Or do I point the new install at the
old data directories?

Sorry to be so confused (and confusing)
