2Upgrading from previous versions of FileField does not differ from the
3recommended approach for other modules.

81) Your Drupal 5 installation must be running at least FileField 2.3 before
9 migrating to Drupal 6. If your version of FileField is older than this,
10 install the latest version of FileField for Drupal 5 on your Drupal 5 site
11 and run update.php. This gets the database in a format that the Drupal 6
12 upgrade expects.

142) After ensure FileField 2.3 or higher is on your Drupal 5 site, upgrade your
15 site normally to Drupal 6. Download the latest version of FileField for
16 Drupal 6 and place it in your sites/all/modules directory.

31Running update.php
32------------------
33Never, never, ever expand the "Select versions" fieldset and manually change
34the update number. Drupal knows which version you are currently running and
35automatically selects the appropriate version. If you change this number, you
36risk running an update twice (if you select a lower number) or you'll skip
37updates entirely (if you select a higher number). The ability to change the
38update number was intended for developers. Due to the confusion caused by this
39fieldset, it has been removed entirely in Drupal 7 to prevent such accidental
40self-inflicted damage to user sites.
