The normal route, by following the help from joomla is:

1) Install a tool

2) install patches to components (takes a long time)

3) make a migration file

4) install Joomla 1.5 and in the process upload the migration file (and hope to avoid timeouts!)



1) install joomla 1.5

2) Install and use component*

Done, thats it!
