I was confused, but I think I have figured out why.  When working with 2.4.1, I had downloaded the zip file that has the AS bundled in.  You have suggested that I leave the database as is and "load the 2.6 portal instance."  I couldn't figure out how to do this.  Can I load the 2.6 instance by copying the jboss-portal.sar directory from the 2.6 directories into the deploy dir of my bundled 2.4.1?  Then it will work with my existing database (right?).  (And when I start up the server, will it create the additional 2.6 tables that you mentioned?)

Thanks, Sohil.  Please let me know if my current thinking is on track.
