uploading 1.2 db / overwriting (1 post)

    hi;

    i used to have a wordpress powered site awhile ago with 1.2. i quit maintaining the site for awhile and everything was wiped, but i had a backup .xml of the database.

    now i've re-setup the site with 1.5, and i have this old xml file i'd like to put up for archival purposes, but i'm not exactly sure how to go about doing it. more importantly, i'd want to make sure that uploading it doesn't overwrite any existing content or options (there were authors on the previous blog that aren't on the current one, same with categories, etc.)

    any help on this would be splendid (not too familiar with uploading dbs, but i know my way around phpmyadmin and such.)
